London Festival of Architecture 2015: Work in Progress

Wednesday 18 February 2015

The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) is calling for participants to explore and engage with the changing landscape of London through this year’s central theme, ‘Work in Progress’.

Work has shaped our city and informs our lives. It connects London socially and globally; it is the means by which we share and test ideas, and often where we have our greatest successes and challenges. London exists because of its commercial roots, as a place of production, the exchange of goods and services. 

This year’s theme ‘Work in Progress’ presents a chance to explore the changing nature of work, and workspace, as well as its impact on, and role in, the continued evolution of our city. 

Patricia Brown, Chair of the London Festival of Architecture, comments: 
“London exists because of its commercial roots, and work and London go hand in hand. Work – aka career - is why many of us chose, or continue, to live in London. So this year’s festival theme of ‘Work in Progress’ is a route into exploring the impact of work on our lives and city, and especially the role of its architects and architecture in informing and influencing London’s evolution.” 

Proposals are being invited for Associated Projects and Open Studios, in partnership with RIBA London. The deadline for submission is 17 March 2015.
