Architecture students at the University of Westminster have had the opportunity to showcase their pavilion designs at a number of iconic London locations during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.


The University of Westminster designs on display are ‘London Dresser’ by Design Studio 17 which is being displayed at The Shell Centre at Southbank; ‘Streetscape Carousels’ by Studio PUP which are at five different locations including Norwood Cemetery, and Borough Market and Aurora by Design Studio 15 which is situated in Victoria Park. The three groups are all made up of students from the Master of Architecture (MArch) Part 2 course.

The installations form part of a program presented by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and the Mayor of London: WONDER. Students from the University of Westminster, home to one of the UK’s leading architecture schools, beat off stiff competition and were chosen from numerous submissions to have their projects made and displayed throughout London until 12 September as part of the GLA initiative to dress London for the Games.

Katharine Heron, Head of Architecture, University of Westminster, said: “This project has given our students the fantastic chance to see their designs come to life and displayed proudly in the heart of London. Those visiting London this summer will be able to interact with and admire the projects which combine adaptability and functionality with creativity; elements which are key components to modern day architecture.

“We are thrilled that designs from our students were chosen to showcase the diversity of the architecture work from the University of Westminster. The high standard of design on show here is testament to the hard work and tenacity of our students as well as the support and assistance that they receive from their tutors and fabricators.”
