Made in London powered by PechaKucha

Join us and our special guest, Mark Dytham, co-founder of PechaKucha, for an exciting evening of quick-fire presentations from some of London’s most dynamic architects, engineers and boroughs who have used London as a platform for innovation to provide for their fellow Londoners. 

There has been a resurgence of manufacturing in London, makers and manufacturers are finding resources and creating within the city. How are architects, designers and makers using London's resources to inspire and create new products, interior fittings and buildings? What creative, inspiring spaces are being developed for making in the city? More and more, consumers want to understand the lineage of the product they are purchasing, they want to invest in the local community and support local businesses. How are London’s creators meeting these consumer preferences? 

By looking at various projects across the city, London’s best examples of ingenuity, this pechakucha event will demonstrate the distinctiveness of making in London. 

The event is free to attend but registration is essential, please register here. More info here.

Kate Malone and Stephen Pey worked together to create a building with hand made glazed tiles and design.
