Our @l_d_f_official Design Route has something for all the family! Hosted by two artists, we're encouraging the designers and architects of the future to create their own masterpieces! Bring your kids along for engaging and immersive activities – they'll be given all the materials they need (paints, glitters. buttons, shapes) to produce a visual feast of design and creativity for themselves. Drinks and snacks will be provided too! . Today and tomorrow, 10am-4pm! . . #PaddingtonCentral #Paddington #London #PCDR18 #LDF18 #DesignRoute #LondonDesignFestival #free #kidsactivities

Have you visited Ido Garini’s Flip Book Garden yet? A conceptual Victorian inspired garden that changes throughout the day, is it part of our @l_d_f_official Design Route. . Seen here in its daytime layout, all the furniture is made of a specially treated recyclable material, getting its structural and load baring strength from its beehive formation. . . #paddingtoncentral #paddington #london #pcdr18 #ldf18 #londondesignfestival #flipbookgarden #designroute
Students from local primary schools were on campus today to discover our @snohetta Book Pavilion!

"Appealing to wide sections of the community, these bespoke structures capture not only the design-led ambitions of the campus, but also Paddington’s Central’s neighbourhood spirit, something I’m proud to see evolve further as I’m out and about," - @RosieGlennArt.

Join us at 6pm this evening for a talk with 'Colour Transfer' artist @lizweststudio ! Liz will explain how her artistic investigations into the nature of perception have revealed that our understanding of colour can only be realised through the presence of light. RSVP on our website - link in bio. . As a visual artist who creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light her work explores how sensory phenomena can invoke psychological and physical responses that tap into our deeply entrenched relationships to colour. Her practice involves playfully refracting light through space, using translucent, transparent and reflective materials, which direct the flow of natural and artificial light provoking a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer. . . #PaddingtonCentral #Paddington #London #LDF18 #PCDR18 #LondonDesignFestival #DesignRoute #ColourTransfer #LizWest #Today
