Designers Talk

NEWS |

We’re delighted to introduce Designers Talk. A new video series featuring exclusive interviews with winners of past and present LFA competitions.

Designers Talk kicks off with South Ken Green Trail, a design competition that aims to support biodiversity and the recovery of London’s arts and science district.

Launched earlier in the summer in collaboration with Discover South Kensington, South Ken Green Trail features three ‘green interventions’ on Exhibition Road:

• The Algae Meadow by Seyi Adelekun and Wayward for the Victoria & Albert Museum

• Home Away from Hive by Mizzi Studio for the Science Museum

• Windflower by Urban Radicals in collaboration with Adam Harris for the Goethe Institut London

In the first episode of Designers Talk we sit down with Seyi Adelekun and Thomas Kendall from Wayward to talk about their installation, what inspired them to submit a proposal and their experience working with the LFA team, and lastly what this competition meant for their career and future opportunities.
