Show 2017: School of Architecture
29 June 2017 to 2 July 2017 | Closed 30 June, open 12–8pm Thursday, Saturday & Sunday
The Workshop | 26 Lambeth High Street, SE1 7SP
The School of Architecture will stage its first annual graduate exhibition outside of the College in the unique space of an old fire station in Lambeth. Taking on a new format that will include workshops with local teenagers delivered in collaboration with the Stephen Lawrence Foundation, the exhibition demonstrates the work of 84 students across MA Architecture, MA Interior Design and MPhil / PhD programmes.
Visitors are invited to explore politically charged and socially aware student work that expands the possibilities of architecture. Projects range from Borneo, Chad, Italy and Iran to Blackpool, Wales and Walthamstow and experiments in housing, agricultural production, infrastructure, automation, robotics and digital simulations to push the limits of current modes of existence.
Interior Design students present projects that have the commonality of re-use of obsolete or redundant infrastructure and buildings including reworking Greenwich Pier for a mudlarking/jewellery factory, the creation of new ideas of what the Museum of London might be, a forensic examination of the future(s) of Soho, reusing redundant retail spaces, exploring and responding to the infrastructure of the city.
