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.

Summer DLAB

24 July - 11 August
Organized by: Architectural Association
Architectural Association
36 Bedford Square

Taking place at the unique atmosphere of AA’s London home, the three-week long programme is formulated as a two-stage process.


During the initial stage, participants are introduced to core concepts related to material processes, computational methods, and various digital fabrication techniques. Basic and advanced tutorials on computational design and analysis tools are provided. The programme performs as a team-based workshop promoting collaboration, research, and ‘learning-by-experimentation’. During the second stage, participants will propose design interventions based on the skills and knowledge gained during the previous phase, supported by scaled study models and prototypes. Finally, the fabrication and assembly of a full-scale architectural intervention with the use of robotic fabrication techniques will unify the design goals of the programme.
