Three young practices, Houlton Taylor, Dow Jones and Patrick Lynch, presented their design processes in a collaborative exhibition. Having designed a variety of projects including, respectively, a residential school in Cumbria, a new build house in Suffolk and a community centre in Newham, they represented an emerging temperament in architecture.

Focusing upon the mechanisms that make up a studio-practice, the exhibition reassembled elements of their working space, treating the gallery as a meeting room in which to encounter people and ideas. The installation gave the audience the opportunity to engage in the architects' design process from their inspiration and initial responses to site and space, through to developing working drawings that result in the finished built projects.

Encounters offered an insight into the creative process of making, designing, and building buildings with images of the practices' work.
