This year's graduate show for Birmingham School of Architecture & Design showcases the latest work from final-year students for courses in Architecture, Landscape, Product Design and Interiors. Collectively, the work celebrates the variety and dynamism of the school and its students. 

All the work illustrates speculative projects undertaken across various levels. Undergraduate students have been exploring the West Midlands region, speculating on the role infrastructure plays in our urban environments, with meaningful interventions to create new public spaces. Postgraduate work is spread across four design studios, each one positioned in a regional and European site. They have specific themes in self-organising systems, allegory, craft and scarcity to generate provocative responses to the challenges each site faces.

The exhibition will open with a private view, bringing together industry partners, staff, students and alumni across the region. A short awards ceremony will take place on the night, rewarding students for their attainment, professional activities and excellence.
