At this exhibition you will be able to see examples of the diverse cross – disciplinary design and making of students at the Cass School of Art, Architecture and Design.

The Cass at London Metropolitan University is a multi-disciplinary school of creative practice which has clear principles of socially engaged and impactful design. We believe that our work means most when it benefits people and society in some way, and strive to ensure that our graduates leave committed to applying what they have learned with us to improving people’s lives and environment.

The whole School is committed to learning through making, in order that our designs are founded in a realistic understanding of materials, processes and impact – so we consider that our staff and students will ‘make’ everything, from books to buildings. We are especially committed to inter- and cross-disciplinary exploration, as this is often where innovation and unexpected opportunities lie. With the creative economy of the UK now one of its principal engines of growth, Cass graduates are able to be confident of long-term career opportunities as they discover and apply themselves to the numerous and ever-changing problems and opportunities that arise for artists, architects and designers as our world becomes more complex and unpredictable.

Exhibiting students, alumni and projects include: Scott Kelly, Diggory Rush, Max Randall, Nick Marschner, Moe Reddish, Freddie Keen, James Whittam, Peter Stovin, Lara Chamandi, Jo Baker, Iraide Gerai, Callum Partridge, Yasmin Afif, Maria Gower, Susana Gogarty, Carluccio Project, Ella Merriman, Miranda Tongeman, Barnaby Lewis and Rachel Huxley.

The Cass is internationally recognised for its high quality teaching, excellent facilities and unique interdisciplinary opportunities. Learning through practice, playing with process and working with clients, students at The Cass gain real world experience in both individual and collaborative projects, engaging with professionals, communities and companies.

There is a strong emphasis in our studios on socially engaged Architecture, Art and Design applied to both local and global contexts, and many projects focus on London. Our central London location also gives you easy access to the creative and cultural hub which surrounds the Aldgate Campus. Our many specialist facilities include wood and metal workshops, laboratories, TV and recording studios, editing suites, darkrooms and Metropolitan Works our digital manufacturing centre. Many of our students have exhibited at major international exhibitions and festivals and have won prestigious awards.
