London Festival of Architecture: The Wooden Parliament
3 – 30 June 2019, Granary Square

Coal Drops Yard is home to yet another incredible installation for this year’s edition of the London Festival of Architecture. Spanish, quirky design studio AMID.cero9 brings us The Wooden Parliament, their thought-provoking take on the festival’s brief on the breaking down of boundaries. A massive, wooden structure reaching to the sky, the parliament brings a usually private interior to a public space, aiming to promote debate and the sharing of ideas. The pavilion will be free and open to the public for the whole month of June.

Ermenegildo Zegna S/S 2020 Milan Fashion Week

Sustainability was at the forefront in Ermenegildo Zegna’s latest collection at Spring 2020 Milan Fashion Week. Slim silhouettes walked in a dystopian-esque show under the industrial roof of the Falck iron mill. Sartori’s upcycled collection encompasses the current debate and the changing face of the fashion industry – renewal, reuse and reinvention.
