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!
Serendipity studio has started, and we’ve put up an installation tying together bicycle builders, 3d printed hubs to form this:
To celebrate 5 years of teaching and fostering craft in Clerkenwell, the Goldsmiths’ Centre assembled a crack team of creatives to bung some sticks together to forma nice yellow space frame (literally sticks bunged together, see prototyping here).
It’ll be up for May, go check it out!
This year’s pavilion of social interaction has warped the space-time fabric to make it online in advance of being built at this friendly Clerkenwell Design Week sneak preview page on the web. Exciting stuff. Recruiting for keen assembly volunteers for the end of May soon – if you’re interested, sign up on our about page.
- A huge thanks to all those involved in the next generation design workshops last weekend, the event was a huge success so we’re all very grateful to our amazing friends. We’ll soon be uploading all the photos from the weekend and images of the winning design to the next generation design page. Here’s a couple snaps from the weekend
And as if by magic, the Future of Design pavilion has been reborn on an island in Croatia. Armed with only this instruction manual Tobias from Hylemo has turned a lonely pile of ply into a majestic structure once more (and taken some nice photos, too).
Hopefully the Future of Design pavilion will now lead a long and happy life roaming free in the Adriatic. Not in the actual wet bit of the Adriatic, preferably.
Thanks to Steve, Lucy, and their family of nimble-fingered helpers we’ve built a scale mock-up of the pavilion, and Rich who’s taken some pretty darn atmospheric photos of it.
While pretty, this wasn’t all fun and games: lasercutting and assembling a 1:20 model using the same cutting pattern that we plan to use for the CNC routing and 1:1 build allowed us to do a spot of troubleshooting in advance of assembly.
Registration has now closed for the Future of Design workshops this February. We’re really looking forward to welcoming the participants from many schools all over London in two weeks’ time – thank you to everyone who signed up!
