Eight up-and-coming practices will take part in an Open House event sponsored by Atkins for the London Festival of Architecture called Green Sky Thinking to showcase their work and highlight the importance of sustainable design.
The firms are: Duggan Morris Architects, Amenity Space, BACA Architects, 5th Studio, Ash Sakula Architects, Jerry Tate Architects, Moxon Architects and Riches Hawley Mikhail Architects.
Each practice will present a selected work that demonstrates their commitment to environmental issues in front of an audience of decision-makers in sustainability, regeneration, development and urban design.
The judges include Igloo Regeneration chief executive Chris Brown, Lend Lease’s head of sustainability Janet Kidner, Atkins’ principal urban designer Paul Reynolds, Open House director Victoria Thornton, and former associate director of ECD Architects Suzie Zuber.
The evening will be chaired by director of Design for London Peter Bishop and will take place in the style of a ‘Pecha Kucha’ event, where the entrants will be given a total of just six minutes and 40 seconds each with 20 slides in their presentation.
It kicks off at 18.30 on Wednesday 16 July at international law firm Allen & Overy’s central London headquarters. For more information visit www.londonopenhouse.org.uk.
