Cracking work by the Nottingham Scale Rule team for getting this beautiful structure up. It’s taken a lot of hard work to get to this point so well done to everyone involved for sticking the course. Particular thanks also to Hanson Plywood for supplying all the material.

St John – a grate bit of business

Next Generation Design, Projects

This years NGD pavilion is officially open for business! Hopefully you can all make it down to Clerkenwell Design Week to see the marvel for itself. Those carefully painted pink ends, cute feet and the stretch of fabric flashing across all combine to create the 8th wonder of the world.

And just look at those happy and relieved faces of our volunteers who made such an amazing contribution.

More wood…

…than you can shake a stick at.

Well done and thanks to all the amazing volunteers and students who helped with the NGD 2019 build over the weekend! More wood, more cutting and more drilling than any project attempted so far. And the end result looks amazing so make sure you get down to CDW this week (21-23rd May) to see it. It won’t be around for long!

They’ll be Kewing round the block to see this

It’s back! by popular demand Past/Present/Future has found a new home and in Kew Gardens no less! After 8 months in storage the cobwebs have been blown off and it’s been reassembled for the Botanical garden’s Easter Festival.

Be sure to get yourselves down from the 6th April – 20th April to see the beauty (along with all the other cool stuff at Kew).

And thanks to Jack at Kew, the Pirates and and last years NGD team for their hard work in putting it back together.

A St John’s date

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?

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.
