The Boiler Room @ London Design Biennale

TAU’s School of Architecture designs the Israeli Pavilion at the 2021 London Design Biennale

We are excited that TAU’s School of Architecture won a competition to design the Israeli Pavilion at the 2021 London Design Biennale, opening on the 1st of June. This year’s Biennale is the first in person international festival to return to the UK after more than a year.

The Israeli Pavilion is a multi-sensory experience called ‘The Boiler Room’, made from 2,500 hashtagged boiler switches, that represent the boiling discourse and the tensions between what is global and what is national, and where people from all over the world can interact with each other’s opinions both digitally and personally. 

Established in 2016 by Sir John Sorrell CBE and Ben Evans CBE, London Design Biennale promotes international collaboration and the global role of design with exhibitions and installations that “demonstrate the ambition to create universal solutions to problems which concern us all.”

Taking over Somerset House, participants will respond to the theme, Resonance, which considers the ripple effect of ground-breaking design concepts on the way we live, and the choices we make.

“It has been an incredibly difficult year for the industry, but this programme will bring us together as an international community to reflect and collaborate on the challenges that lie ahead”

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London
