Multi-disciplinary engineering and design consultancy Hilson Moran have announced the launch of their exhibition to coincide with the beginning of this year’s London Festival of Architecture. The Festival, which takes place across the city during the month of June, will this year focus on the theme of ‘boundaries’.
Hilson Moran’s experts in environmental climates have interpreted the theme by focusing on the intangible and invisible physiological boundaries between our urban spaces. The practice will be hosting a month-long pop-up exhibit examining how microclimates impact our daily lives. Space, orientation and materiality of the urban context creates specific climatic conditions which derives from and can be influenced by design.
Hilson Moran’s experts will host 30-minute walking tours for the public along the riverfront from Tower Bridge to Hays Galleria to explore how spaces are used, how the microclimate influences us, and how the built environment complements the landscape.
To compliment this exhibit and walking tour, the practice has worked in joint collaboration with strategic partners AKT II and Tyréns UK to launch of a new app to coincide with the beginning of this years’ London Festival of Architecture.
