The 10th London Festival of Architecture (LFA) will take place in June this year. The festival celebrates London as a global hub of architectural practice, discussion and debate.
This year’s festival will explore the dynamism of the UK’s capital city and its economic driver, through the central theme: Capital. There will be a broad examination of this theme through various manifestations: from London’s role as a cultural capital, to the ways in which human, natural, social and digital capital shape London’s architecture and public spaces.
LFA 2014 promises to offer cultural explorations of London through a series of special events, including special access to some of the tallest buildings in the city; exclusive previews of upcoming projects; a public vote for London’s best new building; and a showcase of works by some of the most famous architects.
The event is organised in partnership with the Architecture Foundation, British Council, New London Architecture and the Royal Institute of British Architects London (RIBA).
LFA also collaborates with other cultural and professional organisations, including The Barbican, Museum of London, National Trust, Royal Academy of Arts, Serpentine Galleries, Sir John Soane’s Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A). This collaboration will result in staging a multitude of installations, exhibitions, citywide tours, performances, local interventions and public debates all across London.
