We have an early release preview!

This year a timber lattice takes a ‘casting’ of the St John’s Gate. After Clerkwenwell Design week, the frame will be remounted in the nearby St James Churchyard to relocate a trace of St John’s Gate into a new, more publicly accessible context.

A St John’s date

Education, Next Generation Design

The London 2019 NGD workshops are over! It was beautiful, and we had some fantastic designs come through which we’ll share in due course.

In the meantime we should dwell on the fact that this year we’ll be in a new location – not in St James’ Church Gardens, but under St John’s Gate! Here are some students assessing the gate in all its majesty.

THIS VERY WEEKEND

Education, Next Generation Design

It is here: the snappily titled First Weekend Of The Spring Half-term. This will be the 4th (FOURTH!) year that these noble days will host Next Generation Design, the exciting start of the process before a pavilion is built as part of Clerkenwell Design Week in May.

From now on this moveable feast shall be known as Next Generation Design Weekend.

Even more excitingly than usual, rumour has it that the CDW brief has changed! Where will it be? What will it be?

Ribbons cut

Education, Projects

We were delighted to be joined by students, volunteers and organisers last Sunday for the official ribbon cutting launch opening bonanza of A Tree Come True.

Peter Murray gave a lovely speech; the team who’s concept design was selected gave a lovely insight into their design process; and Phil and Laura aimlessly waffled about how happy they were that everyone was involved. It was all rather charming.

However maybe best to read about it on the Broadgate website, with some nice pictures too.

Many thanks again to the City Centre and Broadgate for making everyone’s tree come true this Christmas October.

A Tree Come True

Education, Projects

After a delightful rainy weekend, a Tree Come True has finally been installed as part of Generation Pop-up!

Many thanks to all the students who took part in the build, expertly organised by The City Centre, our invaluable helpers from the fabulous Transitions.

The estates team at Broadgate have been unbelievably helpful, and we’re happy to have been able to reuse a spot of local site waste from SRM, too.

A Tree Come True will be up for your enjoying pleasure until the end of October, so enjoy it while you can!

Past/Present/Future/Past

Projects

And so, the circle of life continues, and Past/Present/Future is now very much in the Past/Present/Future/Past for 2018. After a glorious summer in Clerkenwell, the Next Generation Design London team have disassembled the pavilion and stored it. However it may soon become Past/Present/Future/Past/Present, with it being readied for a new home (rumoured to be somewhere near here). Massive congratulations to the students and team for such a great project.

Here it is in its winter hibernation storage unit. Until next year!

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.
