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.

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)
It’s now only 20 sleeps until Open House Families, where Scale Rule will be running some structural tests on different pasta shapes at Al Dente Engineering.
After a 3 year hiatus since Upside Down Buildings, we’re looking forward to exploring fundamental structural engineering principles through practical tests and
messy edible small-scale construction.
In two weeks work will be well underway for this year’s Next Generation Design Pavilion in London! Here’s a quick sneak peak of what you might expect below.
We’re canvassing opinions on our last four pavilions – can you spare us 10-20 minutes to share your valuable thoughts?
We will be forever grateful. Accepting your lovely responses until April 20th.
The lecturers have lectured. The tutors have tutored. The participants have participated. And the judges have judged.
Another fantastic weekend of workshops is over – massive congratulations to all the participating students for your hard work and inspired concepts, and massive thank you to all the tutors and judges who took part.
The NGD LDN 2018 design team are now beavering away for the next step, to invite everyone back for the construction in May!
Next Generation Design 2018 is looking for participants for a February workshop!

It’s seems the longlist is now a shortlist, and we’re still standing. Great recognition for all the folk involved (participants, volunteers, supporters – the whole squad). Thanks RIBAJ!
Well it’s very nice indeed to be longlisted for the MacEwen Awards this year!
In their own wise words, “The happier individuals are in our society are, the better we all feel. Our MacEwen Award entries are an encouraging indicator of the profession’s efforts to further that sense of wellbeing”
Wellbeing is practically our middle name! Here is what we’ve been nominated for (not new news)
