The Bartlett Summer Show returns for 2023 with a record number of students exhibiting at this year's show. Nearly 900 current and graduating students will present their projects from the school’s Architecture MArch programme and a range of undergraduate programmes at The Bartlett School of Architecture's Bloomsbury home, 22 Gordon Street, WC1H 0QB, alongside our now signature digital show.

The Bartlett Summer Show is one of the largest and most well-regarded annual student architecture shows in the world, showcasing the global talent nurtured by The Bartlett, and attended by industry leaders across architecture and the built environment. Expanding into virtual space during the pandemic, the show has now returned to a physical environment too, welcoming guests into our facilities in central London to explore the work our students have created.

Visitors will encounter work from across the design units and studios. The exciting collection of projects on display will include models, drawings, prototypes, videogames and films. This year's physical show will predominantly feature the work of this year’s graduating students, as they bring their studies to a close and celebrate their academic achievements.

A selection of notable projects will also be awarded with Bartlett Medals at the show, with presentations to students during our Private View. 

The show will be mirrored and extended digitally, as nearly 900 students from across all years of the programmes exhibit their work in virtual space, within the school’s award-winning digital exhibition platform. Visitors to the site will be able to explore the projects, navigating virtual galleries and opening up detailed project descriptions, illustrations, models, drawings and videos.   

The school will launch the show to staff, students and invited guests on Friday 23 June, and the general public will be able to enjoy the show in person or online from Saturday 24 June until Saturday 08 July.   

A programme of activities will accompany the show, including events for prospective students, current students, alumni and industry. Full details will be announced later this month.

As always, the show will also be accompanied by a full colour book, available for purchase at the show, in our bookshop or through our Publications page from this summer.
