Various online events - 16-18 December, 2020
Exploring & celebrating the incredible work of City Design & Environmental Architecture graduates

Join us for Earthseeds - an exploration and celebration of the work of the City Design and Environmental Architecture graduate class of 2020 at the School of Architecture, Royal College of Art.

Spanning three days, Earthseeds is led by the student community from both graduating cohorts, and features talks, conversations, performances and group discussions, focusing on issues of care, the environment, technology, climate and social justice.

The title, Earthseed, is in reference to Octavia Butler’s book Parable of the Sower. To sow, to care, to adapt, to persist in the face of adversity and to change: a story that speaks to the uniqueness of this year and to students’ capacity for adaptation and creativity - even in the most difficult circumstances.

This is our first graduation show to take place online - the RCA2020 platform provides a profile of the work of each graduate, and their work is showcased using a range of dynamic formats.

Delve into their work and explore the platform by searching graduate names or browsing by Programme or exploring topical themes told through stories.

Earthseeds presents six separate events over three days:
