Construction for this years next generation design pavilion has begun in earnest! If you’re in the Clerkenwell area over the weekend be sure to drop by and say hello. The pavilion will be up for the whole of Clerkenwell Design Week and will remain in place for the enjoyment of the community for the summer. There’s more information on the Scale Rule website here and on the CDW website here.

A “Montrosity”!?!

Competitions

ScaleRule_Worms_1

So close yet so far. Sad news that our damn near genius entry to the Architectural Leagures Socrates Sculpture Park bench competition fell at the final hurdle (unlike the models in the poster, who fell at the first). We thought we’d be in with a pretty good shout with our idea for seating in the form of giant reshapable tarpaulin bags shaped like worms. But as they say, one person’s montrosity is another’s finest work (or something like that!). A full write up of all the commended entries can be found on the Architectural Leagues website and more information about the proposal on our website here.

Our delightful roll for the MacEwen Awards 2018 has come to a halt with an exciting commendation for the Next Generation Design Pavilion. The article ‘Ess-ence of youth’ thoughtfully written eloquently sums up why we do these projects and our aspirations of what it may bring to the industry in the future.

 Professionals pitch in to demystify their work, encourage design ideas and teach practicalities, so helping to make architecture and engineering seem possible university and career options for young people who might not normally even consider them.
