The Bartlett Centenary
100 years of radical thinking
2019 marked 100 years of radical thinking, research and collaboration at The Bartlett (UCL’s Faculty of the Built Environment). To celebrate they ran a year-long campaign across 100 events, telling 100 stories in 100 days. We worked with the Faculty on all the launch material for the campaign. With compelling copy and words from Eggcorn, and a bespoke monospace typeface from Colophon Foundry, we developed a bold, type-led approach for this landmark year of celebrations.
The campaign culminated in an exhibition that looks ahead to the next 100 years. We designed over 100 colourful Corita Kent inspired stacking boxes intended to be explored and read. The boxes posed questions, and were jam-packed with insightful and relevant reading material. With a response wall, and social media feed it’s hoped the exhibition will provide thoughts and input which might help shape a new Manifesto for The Bartlett (and the built environment).
