Savoy Place exhibitions

We want your suggestions for two exciting new exhibitions in Savoy Place.

Since our foundation in 1871, our members have helped to build the modern world. With the refurbishment of Savoy Place we are looking at ways to celebrate engineering’s contribution to the history of the IET and the wider world. We want your suggestions for two exciting new exhibitions that will showcase the people and ideas behind engineering achievements.

 

Stair display artist's impression Celebrating engineers

‘Celebrating engineers’ comprises two semi-translucent sculptures, suspended the full height of the building’s stairwells. The sculptures use a series of graphic and reflective panels to tell the past, present and future story of the IET through the people linked to the institution from its foundation. Who do you think should be included?

We’ve begun with a list of those already honoured by the IET through awards such as the Faraday Medal, Mountbatten Medal and Honorary Fellowship. It starts with Michael Faraday and our first President in 1871 and extends to the latest recipients of Honorary Fellowship and the Faraday Medal.

Ideas wall artist's impression 100 ways engineering has changed the world

‘100 ways engineering has changed the world’ is an object display depicting the importance of engineering in our everyday lives, from inanimate everyday objects to vehicles, and from huge scale engineering ideas to nanotechnologies. 

It will also include information on the latest IET Innovation Awards, alongside treasures from our historical collections.
