︎︎︎Reality Lab 2.0 

EASA (European Architecture Students Assembly) is Europe’s longest running decentralised architectural education system. Re-forming annually for over 40 years, it gives different countries in Europe the opportunity to host international events at the cutting edge of architectural discourse.

In 2023, the annual gathering will be held in the Sheffield city region, under the theme of Commons. EASA Commons will be jointly hosted by the EASA England and EASA Ireland teams and will explore the social, material and theoretical implications of commonly-held resources and space.

By placing ourselves in the city of Sheffield, we will explore the potential of forming contemporary forms of commons in the context of a northern English city currently facing urban regeneration.

Workshops and live projects will be held both online and in person throughout 2022 and 2023, culminating in the main two-week long event in Sheffield, England.

A Platform For Experimentation!

We can think of EASA as a group research project:

all of the projects, activities and discussions that take place during the event build up a shared understanding on the theme we have set out to explore.
