The London Festival of Architecture 2019 promises to be bigger and better

London Festival of Architecture 2019

June marks the 15th annual London Festival of Architecture (LFA). This year’s theme is “boundaries”.

The festival will take place between 1st-30th June 2019. It aims to support London’s architectural and design talent at four dedicated areas; London Bridge, St James’, Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square. However, events can also be witnessed throughout the city.

Organisers are claiming this is going to be “one of the richest programmes yet”, with a line-up of over 400 events. LFA Director Tamsie Thomson claims “there’s something for everyone in this year’s programme”.

Last year’s event welcomed a record 600k visitors and this year promises not to disappoint. According to its website, the LFA will “open the doors to iconic tours, architectural installations and stunning brick creations; energetic debates to Studio Lates; workshops in extraordinary spaces and tours of new places; exhibitions and bespoke artistic commissions; political discussions and lots of new construction – the London Festival of Architecture has something for everyone.”.
