London Works is a student ideas competition asking you to engage with a real place, a real client, and a pressing topic: how to retain and future-proof London’s work spaces and put on sustainable footing the heterogeneous qualities that make this city what it is. It will launch at the end of June and run for six weeks, there is prize money, a great jury, and a couple of seminars with excellent speakers that will bring you up to speed on the topic in no time.
