The Summer Show is The Bartlett's flagship exhibition, and an occasion to celebrate dynamic, radical and innovative design by nearly 900 undergraduate and postgraduate students. 

The exhibition will incorporate a diverse range of student models, drawings, films, multimedia installations and digital fabrications – encouraging a thoughtful dialogue between students and visitors about the future of architecture and its part to play in shaping the world we live in.
