The Institution of Civil Engineers showcases the vital role civil engineers play transforming lives and safeguarding our future. The new 2019 exhibition explores the hidden depths of water engineering and the work of behind-the-scenes heroes who fight fatbergs and flooding.
The main installations include Sir Joseph Bazalgette’s Captain Sanitation character built of LEGO bricks and a giant Fatberg Monster sculpture. The exhibits celebrate Bazalgette’s 200th birthday this year and his pioneering work in creating the London sewer system, while also highlighting the modern day challenge of fatbergs.
Explore the educational exhibition displays that walk visitors through various engineering projects that help keep the water infrastructure supported. Watch films in the ICE media cube, explore VR worlds and get hands-on building some civil engineering models in the activity zone with LEGO.
