LFA 2018: Micro Manifestos – Identity Through Design
June 21, 2018
About the Exhibition
TheGreenwich Landscape and Architecture Society’sMicro Manifestos Exhibition, sponsored byMEDITE SMARTPLY, is an exhibition profiling winning and commended designs from theMicro Manifestoscompetition. In the competition students designed a pavilion fragment / piece of furniture, each piece a micro manifesto for a grander architectural ambition. Although stand-alone pieces, they aspire to define a larger spatial environment in which they would inhabit.
Winning and commended designs were selected following an exciting competition with world renowned judges, including:Sir Peter Cook (ofCrab Studio), Melodie Leung (ofZaha Hadid Architects), Professor Neil Spiller (of the University of Greenwich) and Stuart Devoil (ofMEDITE SMARTPLY)
The exhibition also features a carefully curated selection of work by some of the University of Greenwich’s top 2017-2018 Architecture and Landscape Student. Each piece gives a visual cue to the University of Greenwich’s unique design identity.
