Visitors can expect to see work which challenges the architectural agenda with creative, innovative, and rigorous design proposals. This year, student work responds to briefs with themes as diverse as kindness, uncertainty, conspiracy theories, the super-urban, ecological futures and climate change. 

Work will be exhibited from four undergraduate programmes: Architecture BSc, Architectural & Interdisciplinary Studies BSc, Engineering & Architectural Design MEng and for the first time Architecture MSci. Students in both the first and second year of the school’s accredited Master’s, Architecture MArch, will also be exhibiting. 


The Bartlett Summer Show will be open to all online from 23 July – 7 August.
