The London Festival of Architecture is a month long celebration of architecture and city-making, taking place every June across London. With a mission to open up discussions around architecture, test new ideas and uncover and promote new talent, it’s an event we look forward to every year!
After a couple of years of running events on-line, this year we were finally able to welcome people back to our London Studio as part of Studio Lates. Studio Lates is now of the LFAs most popular elements, and on the 1st
July, the last day of the festival, we celebrated with the rest of the South-east London architects.
For our event this year we looked at The Act of Connection and Collaboration across our projects and our studio activity. On all our projects we act to connect and collaborate, creating sustainable places for people.
The evening kicked-off with a chance to experience our projects in full 360 degrees. Using headsets and their phones, we walked around new and old projects, experiencing how we use technology to help design collaboratively. These images are still available to view on here.
Next we kicked off a Future Thinking session, a core part of our studio culture. Working in teams and with a range of materials, we explored how we could Activate the Streetscape to make connections at an urban scale and encourage social and environmental regeneration in some of London’s busiest areas.
Finally, the evening was rounded off with a doubles ping pong tournament, popcorn and drinks.
Thank you to everyone who came to see us, and join in with the activities. We are already looking forward to next year’s event!
