The People’s Pavilion – Caring About Co-Design

14 June - 30 June


This interactive outdoor exhibition displays and celebrates the designs of young East Londoners for the inaugural People’s Pavilion design competition.

Running throughout 2021, The People’s Pavilion is a multi-disciplinary, collaborative project that flips the script on who gets to design and curate space and measures the value of genuine co-design. It invites young East Londoners to work in partnership with professionals from the built environment and creative arts industries to design, build and curate the activity within their own pavilion at Here East in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.

Developed specially for the LFA, this open-air exhibition hands the winner selection process over to the people and stands as a powerful demonstration of why we must ensure everyone has a voice in shaping the built environment.

We invite you to come and explore the creative visions of young East Londoners and have your say on London’s first People’s Pavilion – a space designed by young people, for young people.
