The London Festival of Architecture

The London Festival of Architecture
20 June – 20 July 2008

The London Festival of Architecture in 2008 will be the biggest event of its kind in the world.
It will involve all the major players in London’s environment including the Mayor, Design for
London, local authorities, officers and members, and major developers, not to mention some
of the world’s leading architects.
The buzz of activity will move across five Hubs over five weekends, with exhibitions,
cycle tours, walks, talks, performances, installations and interventions, boat trips along the
Thames and large scale street animations each weekend, all focusing on the theme of FRESH!

The theme of the London Festival of Architecture 2008 is Fresh!
The core programme for LFA2008 will focus on five interpretations of this theme and a series
of events and installations are being developed with our partners and sponsors to run across
all of the Hubs. These themes will also be explored in the FRESH! exhibition at NLA running
during the Festival and in the book published to coincide with the show.

LFA2008 is Fresh!
Fresh Thinking.
Fresh Talent.

A broad series of talks, debates and installations during
LFA2008 will challenge conventional thinking on
architecture and design.
A strong element of the Festival will look at fresh talent in relationship to architecture in London, showcasing the work of students, young practices and international architects.
LFA2008 are teaming up with BD to commission a shortlisted YAYA practice to design a
new piece of street furniture that will be produced and installed in key locations in each
Hub to advertise the festival and distribute literature, maps and information.
A series of talks will be hosted at NLA at The Building Centre, highlighting fresh
talent in the capital.
