Now in its 10th year, the exhibition brings together over 60 global projects across six categories: Architecture, Digital, Fashion, Graphics, Product and Transport – featuring film, virtual reality, audio and objects representing the breadth and variety of this year’s designs.

Activism and protest has proven to be a strong theme across many of the categories. See the original Pussyhat, symbolising women’s solidarity in protest of President Donald Trump’s sexist remarks and the Refugee Nation Flag, created to represent stateless athletes at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Be transported to 1920s France with the help of VR goggles, to explore rooms featuring furniture by Pierre Chareau, the great Art Deco architect. A more contemporary (and harrowing) experience is Forensic Architecture’s state of the art virtual reconstruction of the reality faced by prisoners in a Syrian detention facility.

Nominated by renowned academics, critics and designers, each project has been recognised for its outstanding contribution to design that has captured the spirit of the times. The public vote will be open online from 18 October 2017 and a jury of industry experts will decide on the award winners in January 2018.
