|LONDON FESTIVAL OF ARCHITECTURE 2016|
Various venues, London
|Various venues, London, UK.|
|A month-long, citywide celebration of
architectural experimentation, thinking and practice – will return to venues across the capital
throughout June 2016.
The programme will respond to the theme by exploring the central role that architecture plays in
developing ideas of community, even questioning its very definition. How will the enormous
changes faced by London’s growth and the impact of issues such as climate change,
technology, the under-supply of housing and record immigration affect the way we live and work
together? How will we protect the existing in the face of the new and build real cohesive,
sustainable places where people can live fulfilling lives, be cared for when they’re older or sick
and inspired when they’re young. Architecture is the tool that can unlock our ability to create
these communities for the long-term.
