The London Festival of Architecture is the world’s largest annual architecture festival. With an amazing programme of events and activities taking place right across London every June, we welcome everyone into the conversation around architecture and our city.
Exceptionally, for this year, our festival in June will be a new digital festival with the wider core public programme taking place later in the year.
What makes us unique is that our vast programme of events each year is delivered by a diverse mix of independent organisations and individuals – helping to radically democratise the debate about architecture and our city.
