2.6 billion people across the world have gained access to improved drinking water since 1990. However, the United Nations recognise that 663 million remain in great need of an improved supply.

The Institution of Civil Engineers’ WATER exhibition explores this global challenge and shows how civil engineers can help transform lives. It opened on World Water Day, 22nd March, at the ICE’s headquarters in Westminster. Graphic panels written and produced by 301 show the impact of engineering projects and engineers who are supplying drinking water, protecting communities from flooding, sanitising cities and building dams for hydropower generation and agricultural irrigation.
Creating a series of highly successful exhibitions for the ICE has been a recent highlight for 301 Design.

A wonderful opportunity

301 Design were commissioned to work with the Institution of Civil Engineers, Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Institution of Engineering and Technology to develop the exhibition’s content.

Designing and delivering

We researched, wrote and designed displays to highlight global issues, display outstanding projects and present innovative engineers who are transforming lives across the globe.

Highlighting global issues

We have received such positive feedback: ‘301 have brought the power of water engineering to life and shown how civil engineers continue to shape the world’.
