Feminist Internet is a future-focused collective made up of  16 multi-disciplinary artists and designers, including MANE 2nd Year student Rhiannon Williams, who aim to create an equal and just internet for all.

A UAL project, the Feminist Internet originated from a 10 day intensive studio session to re-imagine the internet in a way that does not mimic patriarchal power structures of our current society.

Rhiannon Williams is also running an immersive poetry event in Cyprus March 24th.

Fracture Edit explores buffer zone redefinition and virtual occupation. It wants to transform the reputation of the buffer zone wt progressive, aspirational symbology and it’s starting off with poetry.

Archniect this month ran an interview featuring our MANE course tutor Sarah Featherstone with “VeloCity”, her multidisciplinary team of 6 successful women in Architecture, Planning and Engineering who won the ‘The Cambridge to Oxford Connection: Ideas Competition.

The VeloCity team met through PedElle, a charity cycling endurance event open to female riders working in the property industry. Each successful in their own right, they decided they wanted to work together combining their expertise in architecture, design, engineering and town planning – a place-making competition developing the corridor that spans Cambridge, Milton Keynes, Northampton and Oxford, seemed the perfect opportunity.

Wed, 02/28/2018 - 14:34



Supported by Creative Unions

 UAL CSM / ENS AAMA Narrative Environments Design Workshop

The “Thinking Unit” project is a collaboration between students from Central Saint Martins MA Narrative Environments in London and  ENS AAMA in Paris. The mixed groups of students designed micro-architectural, spatial / social responses to the real-world need for student co-working, professional meeting and relaxation spaces.

Students from London and Paris participated in Narrative Environments workshops at Central Saint Martins and then in Paris.

The workshops resulted in the design of 5 different “Thinking Units” designed for specific sites at both campuses. The pods are adaptable, multi-functional and transportable.
