Ellie Stathaki: Curation Panel Picks

Ellie Stathaki is Architecture Editor at Wallpaper* magazine and part of this year's LFA Curation Panel. In this piece, Ellie selects her favourite events in the LFA Digital Programme.<

In this, new, digital edition of the London Festival of Architecture, there’s something for everybody. Orchestrating and discussing architectural experiences in a city in lockdown can feel like a challenge at first; but a closer look reveals the many ways architecture, and the festival, can adapt to this new ‘normal’.

 

Is baking the right form of escapism for you? Join the brilliant and ever-popular Architectural Bake-off. Do you miss architectural tourism? Look no further than the Czech Centre’s virtual tour of the newly restored Villa Winternitz by Adolf Loos. Do you prefer to spend your time perfecting your design skills? A model-making workshop might be just the thing for you, while making an actual doll’s house will ensure the whole family gets involved.

 

If you missed the fabulous Freestyle exhibition at the RIBA before lockdown hit, worry not; the curators made sure a digital version is now open to all.

 

An engaging session about nature and architecture with Tonkin Liu offers inspiration for both the present and future. The latter comes up again at the Women in Office Design’s virtual event on changing workspace environments.

 

In all these and more, this year’s theme, ‘Power’, is a key touchstone, and the debate about power and architecture remains open, ongoing and as wide ranging as ever, as displayed by the video series 30 Objects In 30 Days, the festival exciting new addition.
