Manifestos returns for the 4th year to present radical calls to action from an emerging generation of voices in architecture who are shaping a new future for London.
Economic insecurities and inequalities; cuts to public services and facilities; climate change; systemic racism and discrimination, and the repercussions of Covid-19 are just some of the trails facing urban dwellers in 2022. In London, these conditions present urgent and complex spatial challenges that require new models of creative thinking and action.
A panel of influential architects, curators, educators and thinkers have been invited to nominate a new voice who is expanding the parameters of architecture, and redefining who London is made by, for and with. This year's nominators are Thomas Aquilina, Ben Campkin, Ashley McCormick, Elsie Owusu, OBE and Binki Taylor FRSA. The nominees are Krish Nathaniel, Nathaniel Télémaque, Pride of Arabia, Prince Henry Ajene and Nooma Studio.
