Algae harvesting in Arles

Drop in for a free 15-minute talk and find out more about the most recent project in the Architecture Studio.

Learn more about algae as a design material and explore the Architecture Studio, which has been transformed into a workspace led by designer Samuel Iliffe. Over a three-month residency, developed in partnership with Atelier Luma, Iliffe will map the widely unexplored algae resources in the Greater London region and explore the opportunities it unlocks as a material used in design and architecture. This will be an opportunity to hear first hand from the designer on the development of his research and learn from a selection of works developed by the Algae Platform in other locations.

In this series of taster talks, encounter the stories behind the RA’s Collection and its buildings from the perspective of RA staff. Taster talks take place at 2pm on Mondays and Thursdays.

Taster talks are free and last 15 minutes. Ask a member of the team on site for further information.
