More in My Own Private Utopia

My Own Private Utopia


8 April - 8 April

My Own Private Utopia‘ is a showcase of BA Interior Design Year 02 work from the University of East London at Velorose. The project challenged students to imagine a new bar, mezzanine, staircase and viewing platform in the Barbican Conservatory, to celebrate and delight in the gardens.

Many of the proposals consider changing the building material palette of the Barbican. Others focus on preserving the private feel of the Barbican Conservatory, and make it a safe space for residents to gather.

A Year 02 ‘In-Conversation’ will take place between Head Tutor Pol Gallagher and students at the Private View / Finissage on Friday 08/04/2022 6pm – 9pm (Conversation at 7pm)
