This week, the London Design Biennale 2018 begins with a series of talks and exhibitions. Its focus on global issues like sustainability and migration makes this year's theme of 'Emotional States' something that engages everyone. Other talks and screenings this week include an in-depth look at the Stirling Prize shortlist and an evening of music and food to raise funds to widen access to the profession.
The third London Design Biennale begins 4 September, and runs until 23 September. This year's theme is 'Emotional States', and will explain the big issues of sustainability, migration, pollution, energy, cities, and social equality. Interactive installations will fill Somerset House, creating immersive experiences alongside a programme of talks.
This walk around Bankside will explore the rich mix of old and new, as well as looking at the iconic projects within the neighbourhood including offices by Allies and Morrison, residential Neo Bankside by Rogers Stirk and Partners, and the Tate Modern extension by Herzog and de Meuron. Join to weave through forgotten backstreets and to learn about the regeneration of the area.
Space and setting are vital elements in film and writing for the screen. This panel discussion formed of filmakers, artists, and architects will explore the visualisation of space and its documentation.
Continuing with NLA's partnership with trendy Spiritland in Kings Cross, this session will bring together music and architecture. For this evening, after a tour of dRMM's ArtHouse building, and a dinner, Sadie Morgan will talk about how music has inspired her work, and the ideas that have guided her.
Hear from practices shortlisted for the RIBA Stirling Prize 2018, as they explain the processes and stories behind these designs. This event comes before the prize giving evening in October where the winner will be announced and will gives unique insights into these projects.
