With the 57°10 society now in its 32nd year, we are now looking forward to another great year of lectures and events. The society was founded on the ambition to broaden the discussion of architecture within the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture by welcoming renowned Architects, Designers, and Academics to hold informal discussions which relate to the field of architecture. Some of the previous guests inclue; Andreas Deplazes, Pezo von Ellrichshausen and the late Zaha Hadid.
The society prides itself in being completely student elected and lead. Whilst providing talks and discussion that hope to inspire future generations of architects, 57°10 also acts as a social base for the Scott Sutherland School to engage with one another. Pub quizzes, beer pong, gallery visits, sketch clubs and life drawing are all ways in which we encourage community and social interaction within the society.
Over the 2020/21 year, 5710 aims to be a fully online society for the safety of its members and guests. This will be achieved through streaming our weekly lectures online for members to watch live. All information will be provided on our social media for the upcoming weeks.
New members are always welcome to 57°10, with memberships being available to buy from the union website or through contacting the committee. If you have any enquiries or require further information please contact us by email or by visiting our Facebook and Instagram pages.

University can, at times, be very stressful and time-consuming. As students, we often have multiple commitments, and 24 hours are just not enough. Solution? Improving your time management.
