By Gavin Mackintosh-

University of the Arts (UAL) has completed the tallest university building in the UK in the heart of East London. Opening in autumn 2023, the campus is part of East Bank- a collaboration between universities and arts institutions on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford.

It will see 6,500 students and staff with facilities including public open spaces, galleries, library and archives.

The building is the tallest university building in the UK at 85.5 metres. A selection of stitched banners were made by the participants of Making for Change – UAL’s fashion manufacturing programme.Making for Change is a fashion training and manufacturing unit within HMP Downview women’s prison.

Established by the Ministry of Justice and London College of Fashion in 2014, the Making For Change project aims to increase well-being and reduce reoffending rates amongst participants by equipping them with professional skills and qualifications within a supportive environment.

They represent values of inclusivity, collaboration and authenticity alongside the themes of sustainability, community, and accessible education for all.

Head of College and Pro-Vice Chancellor, Professor Roni Brown said, “Our new home will catalyse our mission in new ways.

“This is particularly the case for the public programme where we will have for the first time, the spaces to showcase fashion education, research and innovation and develop and engage audiences locally and internationally.

“Visitors will be able to use our building and be active members of our community. We built along biophilic principles, placing the experience of the people using the building at its heart.”
