On Monday 26th of September all the first year students presented their self‐portraits and their architectural dreams.
The legacy of the Bloomsbury neighbourhood as a place of discussion between writers, intellectuals and artists within its private residences and institutions, it is not only a memory of the past but it also defines the current particularity of the place. From the legacy of the Bloomsbury Group to the presence of current institutions and groups, the Bloomsbury’s rooms are the centre of a series of conversations and discoveries.
The intimate and private setting of those rooms within their institutions and associations will be exposed to the larger audience of the Bloomsbury Festival in Bedford Square. Bedford Square will be an ‘open market’ defined by a series of designed rooms that host for three days different short events, activities, and tips covering different topics in the context of Bloomsbury.

What could be your architectural fantasy? With this drawing we ask you to represent an architectural fantasy, a dream, a ‘capriccio’. Imagine an architectural fantasy, your own architectural fantasy. How do you want it to be? Is it a dream, or a nightmare? Is it a fantastical illustration, or a realistic representation? Is it an utopian vision, or a dystopian image? Is it an ironic representation, or a caricature of something specific? And what do you want to represent? A landscape, or a city, or a room, or something else? You choose.
Brief 1, The Architec’s Dream
A self-portrait is a portrait that an artist produces of themselves. Artists, architects, photographers, film directors, thinkers often express their features, ambitions, qualities, characters, obsessions in a self-portrait. What is your portrait? How do you want to ‘set-up’ your profile? From the endless making of profiles for different social networks often visualised with a photo, we move here to a more constructed representation that express much more than our visual appearance. You will not just purely represent your features; instead you will fluctuate between representing and inventing, recreating and imagining.
