John McAslan + Partners and the dreamspace gallery at Adrem have teamed up to present an exhibition of extraordinary projects brought to life by the RIBA/ICE McAslan Bursary. The Bursary supports collaborative projects proposed by architectural and engineering students and graduates, designed to bring about social and community improvements throughout the UK and overseas.
The humble ideas of students and graduates become reality through the Bursary, which supports the development of collaborative projects. The exhibition, aptly entitled ‘Beginnings’, will feature a selection of those that came to fruition, offering an insight into the diversity, commitment and implicit humanity that floods each one of them. Detailed drawings, beautiful photographs and prototype models will allow the viewer to discover a profound spirit prevalent in architectural research and experiment. The projects selected for ‘Beginnings’ highlight the opportunities available for social change, improving the quality of urban life and engaging communities in the implementation of design.
The exhibition is part of the London Festival of Architecture, under the ‘Fresh Talent’ theme, and will run between 16 June and 25 July at the dreamspace gallery at 1-3 Dufferin Street, London EC1.
