Designing Out

by Robbie

Architecture LGBT+ is launching an open call for an exhibition of talent from beyond professional practice to be exhibited at the Roca London Gallery for the month of September. Selected participants will be invited as guests onto an upcoming podcast and featured on the Architecture LGBT+ website. All work submitted to the Open Call will be presented in an online showcase that chronicles LGBTQIA+ voices emerging across the built environment. This will be a great opportunity to show off the remarkable talent in our community and a chance to come together and reflect on the importance of LGBTQIA+ perspectives in architecture; especially given all those that have missed out on the opportunity to show their work physically over the past two years as a result of lockdown restrictions.

Architecture LGBT+ is looking for work across architectural academia from Undergraduates, Postgraduates, PhD candidates, Tutors and independent researchers who identify as LGBTQIA+ or community allies who have created work pertaining to the wider Queer community.


  • The project must be concerning the fields of architecture and the built environment and must have been created outside of professional practice.
  • If produced at Undergraduate or Postgraduate level priority will be given to academic year 2019/2020 and 2020/2021, projects from outside of these years will be judged on their merit.
  • If produced at PhD level, by an Independent researcher or by an academic tutor it must be from the past ten years or an ongoing project.
  • Those applying must identify as LGBTQIA+ (there is no requirement for the project to include LGBTQIA+ themes) or be an Ally who has created a project directly pertaining to the LGBTQIA+ community.

Submission Requirements

Please submit an A1 Portrait presentation board no larger than 15MB. The board must include your project title and your name.
