The Designers’ Dreamscape
We Design Silence is working with architects Squire and Partners on an inspiring installation for designjunction.
As preparations for the launch of We Design Silence continue apace in the run up to designjunction, we are thrilled to reveal that we are working with award-winning architecture and design practice Squire and Partners to help realise their design for a unique installation at Doon Street.
The Designers' Dreamscape installation is an inclusive co-working space, designed to be an engaging and highly stimulating environment in which people from all generations and backgrounds can meet, work and create together. The space will utilise a number of acoustic panels and elements engineered and manufactured by We Design Silence.
The co-working space will be an active feature within the show where designers will host interactive workshops and connect young designers with industry leaders. Click here to download the booklet which includes a programme of events.
The installation is part of a wider project between the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust (SLCT) and RIBA, in a campaign that seeks to raise funds, promote diversity and encourage inclusion in the design and architecture industry.
Reflecting Stephen’s desire to become an architect, ‘The Architect’s Toolkit’ intends to help SLCT inspire and enable young people from underrepresented backgrounds to study and qualify as architects.
The toolkit itself, created by London-based stationery brand Mark +Fold, will be a special edition of an architect’s essentials designed in collaboration with three renowned designers. It will be launched at designjunction as part of the Squire and Partners’ installation.
To coincide with the inaugural Stephen Lawrence Day (22 April 2019), a small run of each toolkit will be made available for sale, and a percentage of the profits will go towards giving someone else the tools they need to start their career.
It’s a privilege to be part of such a worthwhile project and we look forward to seeing the installation completed for the launch. If you are visiting us at the event and attending designjunction, make sure to drop in to see this unique space while you are there.
designjunction runs from 20 – 23 September 2018 and you will find us on Stand F3 at the Doon Street site where we will be launching We Design Silence.
