What do MK’s young residents imagine the city’s buildings will look like in the future?   

MK Gallery Young Architect 2018 presents the shortlisted entries for a competition to reveal the creativity of aspiring young architects from across Milton Keynes.

In connection with MK Gallery’s expansion, schools and individuals aged 4-19 were invited to create architectural designs inspired by City Club. Using a range of media from drawing to digital animation, their designs explore and celebrate the role that architecture plays in shaping our communities.

Join us on Thursday 5 July, 6-8pm, for a special preview and prize-giving ceremony when the winner of the competition will be announced.


City Club
Milton Keynes is world-famous for its urban design. In the 1970s, the architects and urban planners designed City Club, a visionary leisure complex for Central Milton Keynes. The unrealised project was to feature a mind boggling array of attractions including a wave pool, a souk and rodeo. MK Gallery has taken inspiration from the original cultural vision behind Milton Keynes to realise City Club as a programme of new art, performances, family activities and events. When MK Gallery reopens, City Club will become a series of new public spaces created by Gareth Jones and Nils Norman surrounding MK Gallery. 


MK Gallery expansion
MK Gallery is currently undertaking a major expansion designed by 6a architects. The Gallery will reopen in early 2019 with doubled exhibition spaces; a new learning suite; a multi-purpose auditorium for film, performances and events; shop and café.
