Urban Lab partners with Resolve for the London Design Festival 2016
9 September 2016
UCL Urban Laboratory is pleased to announce a partnership with Resolve - a student-led interdisciplinary collective - during the London Design Festival 2016
Commissioned as part of the Brixton Design Trail, the Rebel Space Pavilion will synthesise community organisation, youth workshops and substainable design to form a temporary space for talks, exhibitions and events within a structure that works as a commentary on the informal architectural practices in the built environments of many of the cultures that define Brixton.
Urban Lab will curate an evening of talks, screenings and music - Refuge, The Subaltern & Urban Space - on 20 September, that interrogates the role of the city in the exclusion, inclusion and re-identification of immigrant and disenfranchised groups. A programme will be announced the week before.
Rebel Space is the initiative of Resolve, led by UCL students Akil Scafe-Smith and Gameli Ladzekpo. The pavilion will be open 24 hours a day for seven days between 17 - 24 September, with an events programme each day from 6pm, and related exhibition each day from 12pm. The structure will be located at the centre of Brixton in St Matthew's Churchyard.
