The School of Architecture and Landscape at Kingston University invites you to the opening of its Summer Exhibition for 2016, showing the work of our Architecture and Landscape courses alongside those of the wider art and design courses in the faculty.

The work in the School has built upon the wider projects of the last few years and the longer traditions of the School, and reflects our commitment to a material, social, ethical and situated understanding of our constructed environment. Projects range in scale from landscapes, to cities, buildings and interiors, and focus on a social understanding of our environment and its inhabitation, addressing both past, our own time and the possibilities and dilemmas of the future.
