Welcome to our Art, Architecture and Design Projects Office

Empowering our local community

The Projects Office provides professional and project management support for students of our School of Art, Architecture and Design to engage in live projects and work-related learning experience. Work can be carried out either by students as part of their coursework, as a consultancy commission, or through research projects.

"I am delighted that the faculty responded to my request to get involved in a series of public art projects. The students and staff from London Metropolitan University have thrown themselves in and have used their creativity in developing ideas that will inspire residents and that could create a focal point for community activity.”

About the Projects Office

The Projects Office was established in 2004 to provide professional support for the delivery of live projects through the curriculum in the School of Art, Architecture and Design at London Metropolitan University.

We bridge the worlds of pedagogy and practice by providing clients with access to a broad University network of academics, professionals and stakeholders. We favour projects with a clear social purpose. 

We offer services in architecture, design, public art and participatory engagement for public and third-sector clients. We have a track record in delivering education and play projects for local authorities in London and for international NGOs. We have also created street furniture and art projects for the public realm, working closely with local communities across London. Our staff and students engage in research and consultancy projects that address critical challenges for the future of our cities such as housing and climate change.  

To discuss a project that you would like us to contribute to, please contact us.

"Together, the events, which are increasingly community-led, collaboratively imagined and co-produced, bring groups from across the area into one festive space."
