Manifestos - Architecture for a New Generation
This annual collaboration between London Festival of Architecture and the Design Museum highlights new voices who are expanding the parameters of architecture in 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. Precarious working conditions, cuts to public services and facilities, social discrimination, and now the repercussions of Covid-19 are just some of the defining parameters facing young people today. In London, they present urgent and complex spatial challenges for the city and its future urban life.
This year, nine new voices in architecture have developed short films of their manifestos for London's future, responding to the social and urban conditions of the city.
You can view their manifestos below.
“Whilst the air is light and the atmosphere electric, don’t forget to breathe.”
JA Projects is a London based practice working at the intersection of architecture, urban strategy, art and performance. Our projects strike a balance between playfulness and precision, where a creative - often ephemeral - social and performative component is twinned alongside a physical built component.
