This year, the show will be opened by visionary designer Ross Lovegrove. Speaking about The Bartlett School of Architecture, Ross says: “Today art, design and architecture are coalescing at an accelerating pace, transforming our physical man made world with forms and structures that stimulate our sense of wonder and progress.

The Bartlett is at the forefront of this transformation as it nurtures minds that see no divisions in creative endeavour. I see the Bartlett as an incubator of inevitability that will stimulate a profound change in the nature of industry and universal principles of design in the 21st Century.”

Describing the significance of the return to 22 Gordon Street for the Summer Show, Professor Bob Sheil, Director of the School of Architecture says: “This is an historic moment for The Bartlett School of Architecture. This is the first time we’re using our new space at 22 Gordon Street not just to learn, create and research but to share our work and our unique approach with the general public, hopefully sparking conversations about what it means to be an architect all over the capital and beyond.”

30-Second London: The 50 Key Visions, Events and Architects that Shaped the City, Each Explained in Half a Minute

30-Second London book

A stunningly illustrated whistle-stop tour of the 50 key themes that have shaped or left their mark on this historic and inimitable city.

You may recognise Big Ben, Buckingham Palace and Tower Bridge, but how much do you know about Roman London, or the two cities at the heart of this vast and varied metropolis? What engineering innovations allowed London to become the bustling modern city it is today? How did Londoners survive through fire, plague and war? Who were the architects of London’s notable buildings and homes for the masses?

30-Second London presents a unique insight into one of the world’s most exciting cities, where high-tech skyscrapers sit alongside ornate baroque churches, and where art, music and theatre thrive on the city’s diversity. Each entry can be digested in just 30 seconds – using nothing more than 300 words and a single picture – to give you the lowdown on life in London through the centuries.

Dr Edward Denison is an architectural historian, writer and photographer. He teaches Architectural History and Theory at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London, where he is also Director of the Masters of Architecture and Historic Urban Environments. He is a regular contributor for national newspapers, including The Guardian, and has written and edited numerous books, including: 30 Second Architecture (Ivy, 2013) and The Life of the British Home – An Architectural History (Wiley, 2012).

Contributors: Nick Beech, Edward Denison, Emily Gee, Simon Inglis, Alan Powers, Matthew Shaw and Jane Sidell.

Bartlett School Event – 2012

Accelerate into University
Architecture for all, not just a few

29 May

Accelerate into University is the first programme of its kind to support 15 to 17 year olds from non-traditional backgrounds who are keen to go into architecture.

Bartlett School of Architecture

The programme has come as a direct response to the concern within higher education that people from less-advantaged backgrounds are unable to pursue a career in architecture and the profession due to the rise in fees. This challenge is exacerbated by a huge deficiency in access to high-quality advice in schools about what architecture is like as a profession. Accelerate is a pioneering first step towards addressing this need.

To see the mentoring at first hand or attend the mentors’ feedback forum at Make’s studio on Tuesday 29 May 6.30-7.30pm, please contact Fiona Macdonald on 020 7383 5722 or email fmacdonald@open-city.org.uk

The fifteen month initiative has now reached the professional practice mentoring phase: During these three months, the architects are supporting the mentees in their practices to complete a design brief which accelerates their drawing, model making and critical thinking skills for university entrance, whilst also integrating them into a professional and creative working environment.

Alongside their partnership of the Accelerate mentoring programme, UCL’s Bartlett School of Architecture has just announced £100 000 in scholarships to architecture students.
