“As the proud newly appointed lead academic advisor for the UK, I believe that truly inclusive and equitable architectural education has to go further than visibility and LGBT+ focused project briefs, it needs to fully embed and embody q***r theory and q***r pedagogy.

‘Designing Out’ is a wonderful celebration of the relevant, research-led, original and socially complex work being undertaken by many talented students and graduates, and it marks the beginning of a much wider campaign I am leading to address equality, diversity and inclusion within the culture of architectural education.” Gem Barton, Principal Lecturer, University of Brighton and 'Designing Out' panel judge.

Until 8 October.

Last week we welcomed Architecture LGBT+ for the launch of pop-up exhibition 'Designing Out'!

The exhibition provides a public platform for the under-represented LGBTQIA+ design sector, with projects and research by students, graduates, professionals and academics, who because of the pandemic, have been unable to physically showcase their work over the last 18 months.

On the night, we were joined by many of the incredibly talented students and professionals whose work features a wide-range of themes within the built environment, some of which directly relate to LGBTQIA+ themes, or are by designers who identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community; or both.

Visit us this weekend and see 'Designing Out' for yourself!

In collaboration with Architecture LGBT+, Roca London Gallery are thrilled to announce 'Designing Out: A pop-up exhibition of LGBTQIA+ talent from beyond professional practice, encompassing academia and independent research'.

A total of 26 selected projects from 20 universities and 13 countries, range from: Andrew Riddell / Lleddir Werdna’s ‘q***r utopia’ Lipstick on a Pig, where drag aesthetics are used to question the relevance of traditional domestic architectural space for unconventional families to Kyle McCracken’s o###ford, which envisions transforming Oxford’s most iconic buildings – from the Radcliffe Camera to the Bodleian Library – into spaces for a fe**sh nightclub and design research centre.

Featuring a wide range of themes within the built environment, some of which directly relate to LGBTQIA+ topics, or are by designers who identify as being part of the LGBTQIA+ community; or both.

Visit https://bit.ly/3zY4xss for more details.

Until 8 October 2021.

The week on Rocagallery.com, designer, urbanist and Director of Strategic Design at Vinnova, the Swedish government’s innovation agency, Dan Hill, explains how our streets tell us what our cities are really about.

"The street is the basic unit of the city: all systems converge on the street, all culture plays out there, one way or another. Streets host protest or celebration, but also quiet reflection, chance encounter,mundane chore, creative exchange, the complex essence of everyday urban life."

Sea Change interview: KCAP and Felixx

In the final interview of our Sea Change series, curator Eva Woode is joined by Ya-Hsin Chen, Associate Partner of KCAP and Michiel Van Driessche, Founder and Partner of Felixx.

As seen in the exhibition 'Sea Change: Flood Resilient Architecture for the 21st Century', the HafenCity project in Hamburg was developed on an innovative concept for the integration of sustainability and resilient city planning. Located in the Elbe river’s flood zone, the urban plan represents Europe’s largest inner-city redevelopment project. Scheduled for completion by 2025, it defines how concepts for flood prevention need to be integrated right from the start.

Our Story

Designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, the multi-award winning Roca London Gallery incorporates product display environments alongside a continuous programme of exhibitions and events on the topics of architecture and design.

Architecture

From the ripples of the façade to the multi-functional spaces within, the movement of water is the overriding theme in the Roca London Gallery, flowing and merging exterior and interior spaces. The sculpted interior includes more than 200 unique concrete panels, which, along with 1209 bespoke porcelain floor tiles, define the product display environments. Meanwhile, the iconic pod lighting highlights the fluid and continuous surfaces of the central axis, around which the Roca London Gallery revolves
