First Years spent the first term working in groups to produce four urban strategies focused around Stratford and the Royal Docks, while Second Years, in the midst of intense design experimentation, have produced key drawings which articulate an individual objective to design architecture that could have a positive impact on London life.

Over the next two terms, this work-in-progress will be developed into fully evolved proposals.

Composite Material Event, Telford International Centre, England, UK

5 – 7 Sep 2017

Growing use of composite materials for architects poses inspection challenge

While composites are increasingly being used to replace conventional materials in architecture and infrastructure, experts are still assessing the best ways to inspect and validate such structures.

Some of the world’s leading authorities on composite inspection will be gathering in Telford next month to reveal the latest research and cutting-edge testing techniques. The event on Tuesday 5 September is part of NDT 2017, the annual conference of the British Institute of Non-Destructive Testing (BINDT) and will run alongside its free Materials Testing exhibition from 5-7 September at Telford International Centre.

The full-day programme of conference lectures will focus on different inspection techniques including ultrasonics and X-ray and applications such as aircraft composites and 3D woven fabrics. There will also be a half-day of lectures on the inspection of additive manufactured parts on the following morning, Wednesday 6 September.

Cailean Forrester, who is head of BINDT’s composites group and CEO of the inspection company Inspectahire, said: “The use of composites now extends well beyond supercars and aircraft to trains and ships, pipelines, bridges and buildings.

However as with any new materials, we do not know for certain how these structures are going to behave in five to ten years’ time and are still working out how best to inspect and validate them. By sharing leading-edge research and the latest developments, this event will help to build confidence in expanding the use of composites.”

Theatreland by MacDonald 'Max' Gill

This major retrospective will feature rarely-seen original artwork, including Max’s beautiful (and traffic-stopping at the time) 1914 ‘Wonderground’ map of London Underground stations, Peter Pan map of Kensington Gardens and amazing pictorial map of Theatreland, as well as original posters, personal papers & artefacts unearthed at Gill’s remote Sussex cottage. Much of the work was discovered by Gill’s family rolled up in chests and tucked away under the eaves of the cottage. Max was famous in his day but has become a bit overshadowed by Eric, so the exhibition’s aiming to help bring his work back to the public.
