2015 London Festival Of Architecture To Explore ‘Work In Progress’
It has been revealed that the theme for the 2015 London Festival of Architecture (LFA) will centre around ‘Work In Progress’. The festival, which is comprised of a series of events in and around the UK capital, seeks to “highlight the key role architecture plays in social, urban and cultural development.” The annual celebration, which will run between the 1st and 30th June, will be jointly delivered by the Architecture Foundation, the British Council, New London Architecture, and the RIBA’s London branch. Last year’s 10th anniversary festival saw over 200 events ranging from walking tours and cycle rides, to exhibitions, talks, debates and films all addressing the theme of ‘Capital’.
The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, spoke fondly of last year’s LFA: “I’m hugely enthusiastic about good design and year on year the London Festival of Architecture continues to surpass its previous successes.” He continued by arguing that “the festival makes an enormous contribution to London’s profile by promoting the talent, output and success of our architectural sector. The debate and engagement the festival creates helps shape this great city.”
According to the Architects’ Journal an “open call for architects, designers and artist to participate in the summer festival is set to be launched next month.”
