STORE Schools

 The STORE London Summer School immerses students in a two-week collaborative design and construction project. Through material testing and immediate engagement with an active urban site, we will explore architecture, art practice and performance to understand the dynamics of public space while developing the skills to intervene effectively, creatively and sustainably.

STORE is an association of architects, artists and designers with a mission to facilitate and drive local change within the urban environment. Since its inception in 2010, the group has developed to form an association whose output and ethos reflects the values and talents of its members.


STORE School is an experimental model of art and architecture education that aims to facilitate the sharing of skills and knowledge between experienced practitioners and the surrounding communities. With a focus on highly collaborative spatial design and building projects, the courses often lead to large-scale installations and ambitious public performances.

With the aim to provide affordable art and architecture education, STORE school currently runs workshops and two-week summer courses. Often situated within challenging urban environments, STORE’s process of rigorous research, design and build has enabled a measured and creative regeneration of many disused spaces.


Our students have gone on to study Architecture, design and art at some of the most prestigious universities in the UK, including The Bartlett school of Architecture, The Architectural Association, The Royal College of Art, Oxford Brookes and many more.

We currently have a partnership with the University of Arts London student accommodation. They have a range of accommodation that they offer over the summer, and some very close to the summer school site.
