FAB FEST will feature over 80 pavilions and installations designed and built by students from the University of Westminster and other schools around the world, which were manufactured in the Fabrication Lab, as well as assembled and installed in Central London at Ambika P3, the prestigious exhibition space in Marylebone Road.
The event, an international fabrication competition and public festival hosted by the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment and the Fabrication Laboratory at the University of Westminster, will hold creative designers from around the world to build out their ideas about architecture and the city.
The theme for this year’s FAB FEST, partnering with Digital Construction Week, is ‘Digital City’ which will challenge teams to come up with engaging proposals exploring their ideas on how the digital affects our architecture, cities and daily lives, manifested through their pavilion or installations.
Last year, FAB FEST hosted over 800 visitors for its ‘Pop-Up City’ theme where participants were encouraged to imagine and build their own Pop-Up City.
This year’s celebration will include events and activities, such as making and drawing workshops, on Saturday 7 July from 12-4:00pm, followed by an evening celebration from 7-10:00pm with live performances from the Trans-Siberian March Band, Karina Ramage, and Ian Smith and the FAB FEST House Jazz Band. The exhibition will remain open to public until Tuesday 10 July.
