Shift Happens brings together the work of NLA Award for Architecture winners from the Royal College of Art. The four graduate architects challenge pressing issues in London’s near future.

Craig Allen proposes a partnership of private enterprises exploiting the happiness index in order to create a new social housing model.
Robert Ware suggests how the London Stock Exchange can reach a mutual agreement with the Church of England to archive its data safeguarding both their futures.
Marie Kojzar questions how environmentalism can work with genetic engineering to form a consumerist eco-industry where factory and nature merge.
And James Christian explores a reverse imperialism where socialist façadism conceals hidden capitalist agenda through inviting partner nations to earn their aid.
