London Festival of Architecture
Throughout the month of June, London is celebrating the biggest and one of the most exciting annual global festivals – The London Festival of Architecture. Until June 30th you can get stuck in to anything and everything architecture and design with a variety of inspirational talks, stunning expositions and educational debates. With over 400 events throughout the month, there will, without a doubt, be something for you to sink your teeth into.
This year, the theme surrounding the festival is ‘identity’; each event is related back to this subject, giving you the opportunity to learn more about architecture and the meaning behind some of the most iconic buildings in London.
Some of the highlights of this year include an insightful talk and exhibition by Chris Dyson about the restoration of one of Clerkenwell’s most loved and historic pubs, The Sekforde Arms. However, in my opinion one of the most exciting events is happening this weekend on 16th June – The Great Architecture Bake Off. Each and every year, this occasion brings together some of the most renowned architectural design firms to construct some of the most famous building from around the globe out of cake…I told you it was the most exciting event of the festival.
