2016: Year In Review
There’s no avoiding it, 2016 was a challenging year. But putting aside events happening beyond the College walls, a glance across the accomplishments of our students and staff buoys us for the future. Both inspiring and challenging, the creativity on show this year filled a growing calendar of exhibitions and events to its brim. We welcomed the public in record-breaking numbers with our Degree Shows, sharing our students’ hard-won achievements from years of study, as well as our new partnership with designjunction and the London Design Festival. Across what has been an exceptionally busy year, we have selected (with difficulty) a few of our highlights.
Design Against Crime worked on an award-winning project that took design-thinking into Serco’s HMP Thameside prison.
Spatial Practice's Shumi Bose was one of the curators of Home Economics at the 15th International Architecture Exhibition.
Four Foundation students win the Fabriano Illustration Prize with illustrations responding to the theme of ‘Made In Italy’.
A look at the last century of textile design at Central Saint Martins, featuring the work of 26 designers.
