‘Manifestos: Architecture for a New Generation’ is a collaboration between London Festival of Architecture and the Design Museum, highlighting work by an emerging generation of voices in architecture who are shaping a new future for London.
The challenges that London poses to young people are shaping the boundaries of architecture and what it means to be an architect in this city. Migration, the housing crisis, a constrained jobs market, precarious working conditions, cuts to public services and facilities, racial discrimination and gang violence are just some of the defining challenges facing young people today. In London, they present urgent and complex spatial challenges for the city.
Responding to these conditions, a new generation of architecture voices are proposing alternative visions for London’s urban landscape. These manifestos prioritise collaboration, dialogue, learning and action in response to the real material and social conditions of a city in flux. They are often steered by collectives over individuals focused on public organisation and democratisation.
This event brings a group of emerging voices in architecture that are expanding the parameters of what architecture can be, who London is for and what its future holds.
Join them in this public debate on how we can design a better future for the next generation of Londoners.
In collaboration with The Design Museum.
