A SPACE10 Pop-up
Shoreditch, London
18–23 September 2017

The world is a wonderful and complex place—especially right now. We’re at a defining point in time—one that will lead to profound changes in society and in the way we live.

People are on the move like never before. In recent decades we’ve witnessed rapid urbanisation—a trend that is set to continue in the years ahead. By 2050, the proportion of people living in cities will have risen to 70 percent. And as our urban environments grow bigger and more crowded, we need to create meaningful spaces for everyday living that are both sustainable and affordable.

But how do we best design our spaces of tomorrow? And what defines space in a broader context?

This September, SPACE10 will host a pop-up in Shoreditch to explore the consequences of urbanisation and the spaces we inhabit. Over the course of six days, during London Design Festival, we will examine the concept of space from different perspectives.

For example, we’ll ask how we can best design the spaces of tomorrow; how different materials and textures change our perception of space; how augmented reality and other emerging technologies might change the way we experience space; how to empower the many people to build their own spaces; and how spaces can stimulate social interaction.

But we’re not doing it alone. We’ve invited a number of thought leaders to share their expertise with us, and have together curated an exciting programme of talks, workshops and exhibitions.
