2012 London Festival of Architecture

The Festival of Architecture is a city-wide celebration of architecture and architectural talent in the UK capital. It brings architects and communities together to examine how we make a better place. The theme of the 2012 Festival – ‘The Playful City’ – responds to the presence in of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Everyone is invited to join the Festival; both Londoners and visitors are encouraged to be active participants in the city. From reinterpreting familiar places through new installations and animations, redesigning public spaces to encourage physical fitness in the spirit of the Olympic Games, to testing interactive forms of consultation and planning for future urban development, festival participants will be encouraged to play in, and play with, the city around them.

Curated by RIBA London, the Architecture Foundation, New London Architecture and the British Council, LFA2012 takes place over three weekends across three London hubs:

  • City of London, Southwark and London Pleasure Gardens (23rd /24th June)
  • Fitzrovia and Victoria (30th June / 1 July)
  • King’s Cross and Hoxton (7th/8th July)

You won’t want to miss it! Find more information on the festival’s official website.
