Curated by Es Devlin, London Design Biennale 2021 takes over Somerset House with 38 exhibitions from six continents and a ‘forest for change’ in the historic building’s courtyard.
We rounded up the architecture and design calendar of 2021 including major events, fairs and exhibitions from Dubai to Milan and Shanghai.
From Burning Man’s ‘Empyrean’ temple to Tokyo Olympics and Venice Biennale architectures. 5 unbuilt pavilions we will be able to visit after the pandemic.
The Greeks have a quite disobedient temperament! Studio INI’s kinetic installation at London Design Biennale 2018 morphs around the bodies of visitors passing through it and challenges the very static understanding of architecture. What if buildings could shape themselves around us? Disobey to prove it right!
Themed ‘Emotional States’, London Design Biennale 2018 focuses on the power of design to create, trigger and shape emotions. We selected 12 of the best installations on show including a kinetic architecture adapting to body movement, a rainbow structure celebrating LGBT right to equal love, nostalgia-infused wallpapers and a temporary shelter and objects designed by refugees.
Inaugural London Design Biennale goes on show during London Design Festival and focuses on “Utopia by Design”. From the United Kingdom to Europe but also Turkey, India, Chile and South Africa.
