Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Celebrate this year’s Bartlett Summer Show with a range of family activities for the creative and curious.
This year's annual Summer Show Family Day will explore The London Festival of Architecture's theme of boundaries, with workshops led by artists, designers and creatives. Each workshop is suitable for young people aged 4-14 to enjoy with their parents or guardians, and is structured on a drop-in basis.
Our café will be open throughout the event selling a range of refreshments for all the family.
Creating Your Future City
Test and make your vision of our future cities and natural environments, using collaborative modelmaking, with The Bartlett's Robert Newcombe. Sustainability, identity, citizenship and other current issues in design and architecture will be explored using an interactive toolkit that supports all skill-levels of making.
Look, No Hands!
Be part of a collective 3D drawing where the studio becomes the landscape to design and draw at full scale. Explore the process of drawing not with your hands but with your whole body, by 'mis-using' everyday objects and clothes to create new and strange drawing tools. By the end of the day a set of new tools for architects will be produced, along with a new 3D drawn space to occupy. This workshop will be led by Felicity Barbur and Kirsty McMullan in collaboration with The Bakerloos.
Ice Cream Architecture
Work with artists and architects from STORE Projects to push the boundaries of the building process and discover how architecture can inspire designs for eating. Play with scale, texture and colour in a series of activities, then turn your ideas into ice cream cones!
Produce your own ice cream flavours that are inspired by works in the show and the architecture around you.
