SustainRCA Show & Awards 2013




Open 10am-6pm daily

Free Event


The SustainRCA Show & Awards 2013 will showcase some truly inspiring examples of new thinking in sustainability. This visionary collection of works sets the new agenda for sustainable perspectives in art and design, offering innovative, experimental and playful ideas for the future.

In Kensington the SustainRCA Show & Awards will include examples of new sustainable thinking and making across art and design, selected from the College’s 2013 graduates. RCA students are increasingly aware of the importance of sustainability within their practice, whether it’s the use of materials within their making or the message they want to convey in the end product. Selected by the College’s SustainRCA team, this exhibition includes more than 30 diverse projects including new applications for luffa in the medical industry and interior design; a glass waste processing scheme that creates public environmental products; furniture making in English woodlands; harnessing pigeon waste as a natural urban fertiliser; and a transportable, human-powered clothes washer for Afghanistan.

Private View: Thursday 19 September 6-9pm

Exhibition open: 20 September – 4 October 2013
Free admission
