London Festival of Architecture will lift your eyes from the streets, raise them up to the roofs, and help you to fall in love with London’s unique and much admired architectural landscape.
London Festival of Architecture, first held in 2004, has become an annual event due its increasing popularity, celebrating London’s built-environment. It investigates the importance of architecture and design in London’s success and celebrates the city’s role as a global hub of architectural experimentation, thinking, learning and practise.
Open to public and professionals, the Festival aims to promote positive change and improvement in the city’s public realm revealing the potential latent within the city by increasing access and suggesting alternative uses for spaces.
During the last week of the Festival, you still have an exciting chance to explore architecture and the environment on a River Thames boat cruise from Kew Bridge to Hampton Court, listen to talks about Urban Exhibitionism and energy, participate in a tour at the London Transport Museum or walk at the Barbican and to visit ongoing exhibitions in various venues, including the Barbican Art Gallery and London Metropolitan University. The Bartlett, UCL‘s School of Architecture, Summer Show opened on the 21st June until 29th June as part of LFA 2013.
The London Festival of Architecture takes place until 30th June, with a rich and varied programme organised by individual practices and artists. More information and the events calendar here or follow news on Twitter.
