The Department of Architecture and Spatial Plannings’ annual first bell assembly will be on the 31st January 2017.
The First Bell Assembly is a traditional annual event of the Department of Architecture and Spatial Planning (DASP) during which staff and students are welcomed back to the Department from holidays. It is also an opportunity to welcome the new/fresh students, just joining the University to our fold as a Department. It is indeed the beginning of the Departmental orientation programme for the fresh students and new staff.
NUST Architecture Honours students Ndeshipanda Iita and Elao Martin recently won the prestigious annual Murray & Roberts Des Baker architecture students design competition in South Africa. Their project entitled ‘Architecture of Crisis – Windhoek Communal Borehole Wells” was awarded the first prize amongst 16 entries from mainly South African schools of architecture by a high-ranking international jury. The award ceremony on Friday 2 September formed part of this year’s biannual Architecture South Africa congress (architectureza.org) held at WITS University in Johannesburg under the theme of “Scale” from 1-3 September 2016.
The Namibia Institute of Architects will now include student membership for architecture students registered at accredited institutions.
The benefits of registering as a student with the NIA;
- According to the NIA Constitution, only Architects are allowed to vote at Annual General Meetings. Until you have completed a qualification that allows you to register as an Architect, and you have passed the registration exam, you are not allowed to call yourself an Architect.
- NIA student registration allows you to become part of the architectural community while you are still studying.
- You are eligible for a free copy of the NIA digest.
- You are on the mailing list to be invited to NIA functions, product promotions and lectures.
- Get involved in projects that the NIA is busy with.
- Start making industry connections that will be advantageous when you graduate.
