‘Imagined Cities' showcases the freshest architectural art London has to offer and highlights the diverse challenges facing highly-urbanised cities today

About

To celebrate London Design Festival 2011, Dainow&Dainow have selected the best work of London's most recent graduates and are placing it alongside the work of established talents in a unique exhibition, ‘Imagined Cities'. Curated by Dainow&Dainow founder and design entrepreneur Adam Dainow, the exhibition highlights some of the diverse challenges facing highly urbanised, metropolitan cities today. ‘Imagined Cities' features the work of acclaimed architecture graduate, Catrina Stewart, whose eccentric project ‘The London Farmhouse' considers how increasing urban populations and waste can be used to positive effect. By integrating agriculture into inner city housing, Stewart proposes how urban communities might eliminate waste and become self-sufficient, using faeces, electric eels and fruit, among other resources, to power urban London communities. Participating artists include Charlotte Baker, Lukas Barry, Charlie Caswell, Nathan Freise, Tom Greenall, Claire Jamieson, Sebastian Kite, Will Laslett, Tom Lea, Pete McMahon, Jenny Melville, Tom Noonan, Alastair Parvin, Tom Reynolds, Ostap Rudakevych, Patrick Skingley, Catrina Stewart, Robert Taylor and Colin Wharry.
