The Bartlett Fifteen Show 2023


Welcome to The Bartlett School of Architecture’s Fifteen Show. The exhibition celebrating fifteen months of innovative work from graduating students on the Design for Manufacture, Design for Performance & Interaction and Situated Practice Master’s programmes.

The Exhibition

The Bartlett Fifteen Show showcases the work of nearly 100 students from across three radical programmes. The projects on display are diverse and forward thinking, exploring and creating new forms of practice. Films, texts, photographs, objects, prototypes and performances consider interactive and temporal architectures and the processes of making and designing.

Our graduating Design for Manufacture students are pioneering designer-makers whose work is created with the making process at its core. They have used disruptive tactics, developing their ideas from concept to completion to achieve complex levels of design evolution.

Exhibiting alongside them, Design for Performance & Interaction students have explored the intersections of performance and spatial design, the arts and technology, the physical and the virtual. Their collaborative, transdisciplinary projects challenge the conventions of performance, and consider objects, space, people and systems as potential performers.

Working at the intersection of art and architecture, Situated Practice students have studied critical theories and concepts of place and situation to produce their own situated practices in a range of media. They have engaged with a plethora of places and publics, collaborating with local communities in London and critically commenting on wider social, cultural and geopolitical discourses.
