Futures in the Making

The AF’s annual exhibition is now open and presents intriguing new speculations from recent architecture graduates

The Architecture Foundation annual group exhibition showcasing speculative architectural futures explored in the work of recent architecture graduates has just opened at Feilden Clegg Bradley Studios’ new gallery and will run for two weeks until the 28th November.

Architecture Foundation London Exhibition

This year’s edition of Futures in the Making explores new ideas for the social role of architecture from a rising generation of architectural talent. Grounded in a profound engagement with the regenerative potency of architecture, featured projects will present innovative and provocative forms of architectural exploration that reflect on architecture’s capacity to engage and foster new social narratives in the context of wider social, economic and technological change.

From London to Freetown, a global range of case studies will explore socially oriented design schemes that engage in innovative forms of regeneration, placemaking and collective community identity. Featured projects will range from research-based proposals for new museum sites in Sierra Leone and subversive masterplans for Swiss alpine communes to new forms of vernacular material making and visions for the design of cyber-urban space.

The exhibition, curated by a joint AF Trustee and Curatorial Staff team led by Eric Parry and AF Exhibitions Curator Zofia Trafas, will showcase eleven projects, including drawings, models and research by selected postgraduate students from London architecture schools.
Featured participants will include: Alastair Browning (Bartlett School of Architecture, 2014); Joe Davis (The Cass, 2014); Eleanor Dodman (Architectural Association, 2014); Tom Green (University of East London, 2014); Yannis Halkiopoulos (University of Westminster, 2014); Kate Lynham (University of Greenwich, 2014); Alexandra McClean (The Cass, 2014); Ruby Ray Penny (University of Westminster, 2014); James Pockson (Royal College of Art, 2014); Olivia Wright (Royal College of Art, 2014); and Sandra Youkhana (Bartlett School of Architecture, 2014).
