IASA-IRISH ARCHITECTURAL STUDENTS ASSOCIATION
Working toward a just world
A just world is a sustainable, peaceful and fun world
On wed the 22nd of november 2000 IASA was set up, we are a group of concerned Irish architectural students.
We want to unite all students of architecture in this country/ island.
Today is an amazing time to be an architectural student in Ireland,
We are living in the third major world revolution, after the agricultural and the industrial; the digital
For the first time ever, Ireland is an economically desirable place to come and work, the tiger is roaring.
Money is coming into the country like never experienced before
With all this though there are still many problems, some of which are getting bigger day by day;
The world is a limited closed system but we are living as if it has unlimited resources which will never end.
We are destroying the life support systems of this planet.
We as human beings have to stand up and try to create solutions to this problem.
Problems within our own country;
City sprawl, traffic congestion and lack of proper public transport service.
Too little recycling and energy conservation in buildings.
Lack of vision and corruption in government and as a result poor quality city and rural areas.
Rent prices getting out of hand, especially for students in Dublin.
An apathetic and dead atmosphere in colleges, a lack of fun, creativity and play.
communication problems, between colleges, architects and the real world.
these are some of the areas we hope to examine and challenge as a united student body
