Scroope About

Scroope is the annual architecture journal of the Department of Architecture at the University of Cambridge.

Since its inception in 1989, Scroope has offered a platform for research and debate on architectural and urban theory and practice. The journal has also addressed the state of the profession, students’ interests and wider cultural concerns.

The Scroope Annual Lecture, inaugurated in 2017, invites a renowned academic or practitioner to present at the University of Cambridge and contribute to the journal’s issue.

Scroope is edited and managed by PhD students at the department. Each year, an open call for abstracts is issued under a theme developed by the journal’s editorial team. Selected abstracts are developed into papers for publication in the journal. The journal is launched at the annual University of Cambridge Architecture Department Summer Show.
