Special Delivery from IBUKU

Following the Bamboo Futures Exhibition at the V&A in September, we have received a rather exciting delivery at Atelier One, one of IBUKU’s beautiful bamboo models, this one of a bridge in Bali.

 A massive thank you to Ibuku for letting us have this, we are honoured to have it in our office.

Bamboo Futures at the V&A 14th - 22nd September

Make sure you head to the V&A for these exciting London Design Festival events:

As a child, I always thought that London, Ontario was where the Queen lived. I was distraught to hear she actually lived in England. But I was a villager, we didn't have a lot of information where I grew up.  London, I can't wait: I thought the Victoria and Albert Museum was a place they kept stuff Victoria and Albert picked up when they travelled, but every time I mention the name people's eyes go wide and say, ‘oh my god’ and ‘wow’. So I'm changing my opinion pretty quickly, which is a good thing because I'm going to be there.  They will be doing an amazing exhibition of the bamboo models right at the front door and then we will be doing a panel as part of London Design Festival. I am very, very happy to be going there. Hope to see some of you.  —John     Bamboo Futures 14–22 September 2019  Blavatnik Hall, V&A Museum, London  Free entry   Bamboo is one of the world’s most sustainable building materials with the potential to revolutionise construction methods around the globe.

Bamboo is one of the world’s most sustainable building materials with the potential to revolutionise construction methods around the globe.

First Light receives planning permission

Joderal Bank Observatory has received planning permission for its project 'First Light'. The project not only sees the conservation and restoration of both the Grade-1 listed Lovell Telescope and the original Jodrell Bank Control Building but also a brand new exhibition space.

This is a fantastic project which celebrates the scientific heritage and also an enhanced educational programme.
