This Tuesday, we are continuing the city walk theme of the week with Woody Allen’s ‘MANHATTAN’ (1979) – bustling with exquisite black and white shots of Manhattan, this movie is a love letter to the city and walking. What are your favorite movies centered around the aesthetic of the urban realm? Leave a comment or DM us on Instagram.
With the faculty partially closed, study can be challenging. It can be difficult to feel connected or part of a community, not to mention meet new people. That’s why being part of a student association like ARGUS is so crucial at times like these. We aim to keep you up to date with goings-on, and most importantly, hear what you have to say. We want to know what you’re concerned about, what you want more of, and how the BK can make your experience here that little bit more interesting.
We are a collective of master students doing the Architecture track at TU Delft. We run a programme of creative events, excursions, lectures, workshops and debates and aim to provide a platform for students, alumni, practitioners and academics to connect, exchange ideas and explore architecture and its peripheries. Finally, we organise ARGUS Annual which is a yearly printed catalogue with selected student work. You can purchase the last three editions from the Argus office at BG.OOST.500, feel free to drop by and check if one of us is there.
If you are interested in getting involved with any of this, if you yearn to meet new people, share ideas and make things happen or if you have any concerns about your student experience, always feel free to contact us via social media or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We also have open meetings every Monday during the lunch break (12:45-13:45).
Otherwise, be on the lookout for our upcoming events, which will be posted on social media and posters round the BK!
Starting next week, we will be selling our annuals – books with best projects of the previous 3 years in front of the ARGUS office in BK! To get the spirit going, those will be accompanied by some mulled wine to warm you up in this weather. Music and good vibes also provided 🙂
The Night of Philosophy: post-anthropocene working group have started a blog! We will be collectively updating weekly over the year, with reflections on the matter we encounter as we plan our events. The written posts, and our instagram are part of our working process, an everyday space for thinking about the ecologies we are embedded within. This practice intertwines with our small events, and the main ‘night of philosophy’ itself.
As Night(s) of Philosophy, this year we concern ourselves with (unstable) questions of the post-anthropocene, and the role of the Architect. Naming the profession as a discipline of world-ordering, we recognise that architects have and do play a detrimental role in the instrumentalisation of all living and non-living beings. We want to make space for discussion and engagement within the faculty and beyond – and the blog is one of many!

Architecture Student Association
ARGUS is the Architecture master Student Association of the Faculty of Architecture at Delft University of Technology. ARGUS is directed by master-students that are involved on a part-time basis. The current form of ARGUS is based on the resurrection (restart) in 2010, as ARGUS had been disbanded in 2008 as the fire had burned down the old building and all data.
Our aim is to provide students with extra-curricular activities expanding their horizons in architecture and fields of study closely related to architecture, by means of excursions, lectures, workshops, debates, symposiums, etc. Every month, ARGUS issues a sheet of paper focused on a certain topic. Connected to this paper is a lecture or movie. Other events that were organized by ARGUS are the Venice Biennale excursion, the Night of Philosophy and new this year will be the PhD-day and an exhibition of final products of master projects.
As a member of ARGUS, you’ll receive the up to date news around ARGUS by email, a discount on all organized events and you become part of the Argus network. Join ARGUS by filling out the member-form on this website. In case you would like to help organizing one of the future events you can specify this in the member-form or contact us at email@example.com
Because ARGUS is based upon student initiatives, we are always looking for new input and ideas. So, if you have a great idea, don’t hesitate contacting us!
