Clerkenwell Design WeekTaking place at some of the more unusual locations in Clerkenwell - The Farmiloe Building, and the Priory of the Order of St John - Clerkenwell Design Week is a three-day festival celebrating the creativity, social relevance and advancements in technology behind design. Now in its sixth year, the festival expands within the existing four focused exhibitions. The Design Factory is where you'll find present high-profile brands, the Farmiloe Building is dedicated to lighting, and Platform showcases the work of talented, up-and-coming designers in the subterranean Victorian prison at the House of Detention. Additions, new to the festival in 2014, once again takes over the Crypt on the Green at St. James Church. With new design pieces, commissioned projects, street spectacles and pop-up workshops as well as high profile speakers - including Ron Arad, Arik Levy and Sir Peter Cook in 2014 - this really is a must-visit event for architects, designers and anyone interested in design.

 

About Crypt on the Green

The Crypt on the Green, underneath St James Church in Clerkenwell, is on the site of the first nunnery to be built in London dating back to 1100AD. The crypt, with its magnificent vaulted ceiling, was restored in 1993 and provides an attractive space large enough to accommodate 300 people standing and available for private hire.
