Conflicts of an Urban Age

Education, Next Generation Design

We’re delighted to be showcasing Next Generation Design as part of an upcoming LSE Cities exhibition, at 8 Fitroy St.

This technically means that its an ‘inspirational solution, developed and implemented by individuals, local communities or organisations at grassroots level, that addresses challenges posed by rapid urban growth in London’. Phew.

Testing To The Tooth

Education

Al Dente Engineering happened, with 50+ budding mini material scientists helping test our pasta sections in bending and compression before adding to our pasta cityscape!

Buildings were built, pasta was tested. Here are some snaps…

…and here are some very preliminary tantalising results, with no explanation! What do they mean? Watch this space for a proper evaluation soon.

Tomorrow morning Next Generation Design London 2018 opens with Clerkenwell Design Week! It’s a bit redder than previous years. And also more plant-y. We think you’ll like it!

Congratulations to the excellent London Scale Rule team who have pulled this together from the excellent student concept design with the inspiring and nimble-fingered help of a team of excellent volunteers from the Scale Ruler network, AKT II, Grimshaw and beyond!

(Extra special bonus points to The Edible Bus Stop for bringing the greenery in a last minute foliage dash)
