FAB FEST 2016

International Fabrication Festival


June 28th - July 2nd, 2016

University of Westminster, London - Fabrication Lab and Ambika P3

Fab Fest is new International Fabrication Festival hosted this summer by the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment and the Fabrication Laboratory at the University of Westminster. It will feature 50 or more innovative cardboard pavilions designed and built by students from Westminster as well as by guest teams from across the UK and around the world. Each team of five students will be mentored by either an academic or a practicing professional from the field of architecture and the built environment. The event is a celebration of design and making, that will generate a unique urban festival to start the summer. The challenge for participants is to design and fabricate pavilions that will facilitate this urban summer festival - a mini ‘Glastonbury-in-the-City’. The pavilions will be made from cardboard and a range of other lightweight, cheap, recyclable materials, provided by the Fabrication Laboratory. Teams can use either simple hand tools or the Lab’s digital fabrication machines to make the pavilions. The festival will be held at the University’s Central London Marylebone campus, in the Fabrication Laboratory and Ambika P3, our acclaimed exhibition space. It begins on Tuesday 28th June, culminating in a day of festivities open to the general public on Saturday 2nd July. We expect to attract around 1200 people, with entertainment being provided on two stages in the venue, in addition to the activities hosted by the pavilions and their teams. Full details of the event can be found on our website, including information about how you can apply to participate in the festival or book tickets to attend.
