Organised by the Design Museum
A collaboration with the London Festival of Architecture, Manifestos returns for the 4th year to present radical calls to action from London’s new guard of architecture.
What to expect
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. 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.
Each year, a panel of influential architects and thinkers are invited to nominate a new voice who is expanding the parameters of what architecture can be, who London is for, and what its future holds
This year's nominators are:
- Thomas Aquilina
- Ben Campkin
- Ashley McCormick
- Elsie Owusu OBE
- Binki Taylor FRSA
