London’s Royal College of Art has cultivated a bumper crop of creative talent this year. The school’s annual summer show - spread over six buildings across two campuses in Battersea and Kensington - offered up work by the greatest number of students in its 175-year history: nearly 500 art and design postgraduates from 40 countries.

This makes a wander through its halls offer a veritable glimpse of the future. Mentored by some of the finest minds, including Tord Boontje and Neville Brody, the students have spent 12 months honing their art and refining their formula for making a creative mark. We’ve dissected their work - from architecture and vehicle design, to design interactions and jewellery - pulling out the trends of tomorrow and shared visions of how to change the world.
