Urban Design Scholarships exhibition launches at LMU

  • Comment

London Metropolitan University welcomed more than 100 people on Wednesday, 13 May for the launch of a new exhibition dedicated to urban design

The evening marked the culmination of the inaugural Urban Design Scholarships, set up by the AJ in partnership with the RPS Group and Design for London.

Work by Alicia Pivaro, Joe Morris and Fiona Scott, the three architects chosen to take part in the year-long programme, was unveiled at LMU. Their projects aim to provoke debate and demonstrate that architects are ideally placed to participate in urban design.

Kieran Long, editor of the AJ, said: ‘It is still true that urban design is not as good as it should be in this country, but I hope that the Urban Design Scholarships have helped in some way. The AJ has tried to raise the profile of urban design within the profession, and in the course of those efforts, three important voices have been added to the debate about urbanism in London and the UK.’

The exhibition runs until 22 May at London Metropolitan University, 40-44 Holloway Road, London N7 8JL. Entry is free
