The Bartlett School of Architecture Next 100 Years Exhibition
The Next 100 Years exhibition at The Bartlett invites the public to help create a manifesto for the built environment
- Exhibition held in the gallery at The Bartlett’s 22 Gordon St Headquarters will invite members of the public to pose the questions that will define the next 100 years of the built environment
- Members of the public and colleagues from the industry can submit questions in person at the exhibition or using the #Bartlett100 hashtag across social media.
How can we provide a good choice of housing for our growing population?
How do we make socially just spaces?
What is the future of urban health?
Will the virtual world become more important than the physical world?
The Bartlett, UCL’s world-renowned multidisciplinary faculty of the Built Environment, has put together an exhibition to ask the public what it thinks are the most important questions facing the built environment over the next 100 years.
Each of The Bartlett’s 12 schools and institutes were canvassed for their ideas and the exhibition curates some of their questions. Now The Bartlett wants to hear from members of the public and colleagues from the built environment industry to hear the questions they would like academics to tackle over the next 100 years.
The exhibition has been created as part of Bartlett100: The Bartlett’s centennial celebrations in 2019. The responses to the call for questions will be used to co-create a Bartlett manifesto for the next 100 years of the built environment.
Alan Penn, the outgoing Dean of the Bartlett, said:
“As part of our centenary celebrations, The Bartlett wants to co-create a manifesto for the next 100 years of the built environment – with you.
“Despite the breadth of work that goes on within The Bartlett, we cannot begin to imagine the radical new futures we will need for the next 100 years without diversity in the way we think, act, collaborate, practice and make. Without it, we won’t even know if we’re asking the right questions.
“We can’t predict the future, but we can start by making sure we’re asking the right questions, so I urge as many people as possible: tell us about the way the built environment affects you.”
Members of the public are urged to share their questions and ideas with the organisers of the exhibition, either in person at The Bartlett from 2 – 18 May 2019 or via social media – just use the #Bartlett100 hashtag.

About Bartlett 100
The Bartlett’s roots as an institution date back much more than a century: the School of Architecture is 178 years old, while the School of Planning was set up in 1914. However, the ‘Bartlett’ name was first used in 1919. In 1911, Sir Herbert Henry Bartlett, a civil engineer and building contractor, gave £30,000 to UCL to fund a new building to house the School of Architecture, along with the Department of Applied Statistics and studios to teach sculpture.
He chose to remain anonymous until 1919, when he finally consented to his name being given to the department. A century later, The Bartlett has grown to become UCL’s global faculty of the Built Environment, comprising of 12 schools, institutes and centres. The ‘Bartlett 100’ year will be used to explore the radical thinking that has characterised The Bartlett for a century, celebrating what has happened and mapping out where we are going to build a better future.
