Shift Happens!

Monday 1 August – Tuesday 30 August 2011

SHIFT HAPPENS is an exhibition by four Royal College of Art architecture graduates - winners of the NLA RCA Student Award 2011 - which challenges pressing issues in London’s near future. The work critically engages with diverse areas of the city investigating it from social, political and economic perspectives.

Craig Allen proposes a partnership of private enterprises exploiting the happiness index in order to create a new social housing model. Robert Ware suggests how the London Stock Exchange can reach a mutual agreement with the Church of England to archive its data safeguarding both their futures. Marie Kojzar questions how environmentalism can work with genetic engineering to form a consumerist eco-industry where factory and nature merge. And James Christian explores a reverse imperialism where socialist façadism conceals hidden capitalist agenda through inviting partner nations to earn their aid.

PLEASE NOTE THIS EXHIBITION IS NOW FINISHING A DAY EARLY ON 30 AUGUST
