Humans of Construction Gallery

New for 2019 is the Humans of Construction photography exhibition. The gallery will display photography of up to 1,000 of the most influential and inspiring professionals working in the UK’s built environment. The Humans of Construction exhibition is an artistic and educational insight into the diversity and character of the UK’s construction industry.

Each photograph will feature an individual from a wide array of fascinating backgrounds in the industry, from CEO’s to architects, pioneers to students and future leaders.

The Humans of Construction exhibition will include LinkedIn QR codes for many of the individuals featured, offering a chance for you to connect with them online. The photography exhibition will be displayed as part of the LinkedIn Networking Lounge at London Build.

In the LinkedIn Networking Lounge, attendees will be able to network whilst using the LinkedIn app on their mobile to scan each others LinkedIn QR codes to connect. There will be a timetable of Speed Networking events as well as various other networking activities and entertainment.

If you’re heading to London Build this November, be sure to visit what promises to be an inspiring and genuinely beautiful art piece - taking the seemingly ordinary and making it extraordinary. A wall adorned with the faces that make our industry what it is.

You can nominate yourself, or any astonishing individuals within the industry, to be featured in the photography exhibition.
