- In an exciting collaboration with the Design Museum, ‘Manifestos: Architecture for a New Generation’ highlights the work by 10 emerging voices in architecture, who have each been nominated by established names in the profession, for their impact on shaping a new future for London. Responding to the defining challenges facing young people in London today, this new generation of architecture voices pushing the boundaries of what architecture can be, who London is for and what its future holds.
- In a series of visionary manifestos, the chosen 10 share alternative visions for the capital’s urban landscape, prioritising collaboration, dialogue, learning and action in response to the real material and social conditions of a city in flux. Check back every Wednesday and Saturday for more.
Part W (nominated by Peter Barber)
The Part W collective is impatient for equality. We call out gender discrimination in an industry that routinely excludes and are driven by a desire to see places designed and delivered in a manner that is open, tolerant and beneficial to all. We want to see change happening now – so that current and future generations benefit from intersectional thinking in architecture, engineering, policy, planning and education. Our manifesto calls for change in the conversation around what leadership and notions of success look like. We want to lay a pathway that enables future generations to benefit from built projects being instigated, planned and delivered by both women and men equally and fairly. Our current campaigns have been established by a London-based group, but we share aspirations with UK and European sister groups. Outwards looking and collaborative, we are working together to achieve a gender-equal future.
