The London Festival of Architecture is a month-long celebration of architecture and city-making, taking place every June across London. The Festival’s mission is to open up discussions around architecture, test new ideas and uncover and promote new talent.
The Festival is for anyone with an interest in London’s architecture and built environment, bringing together the public and the profession.
CELEBRATORY. Since its origins in 2004, the Festival’s mission has always been to celebrate good design, London as a global hub of architecture, and reveal the underlying potential of emerging designers.
HUMAN. The Festival doesn’t only celebrate buildings, it celebrates the in-between spaces and the people who use them. Communities are at the core of LFA.
INCLUSIVE. The LFA programme is people-led and curated by event organisers; we believe in the power of collaboration with the people who live, shape, and truly know London.
TIMELY. The Festival evolves every year and keeps up with the times. Since 2004, each theme has always responded to real world issues and challenges that everyone faces.
LFA is run by NLA, London’s built environment community. In 2017 LFA was named by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan as one of his design advocate organisations. We work alongside the Mayor’s team to champion architecture, provide expertise and guidance, and help make London a more sustainable and equitable city.
