More cash for LFA

  • 1 Comment

The London Festival of Architecture has received an extra £60,000 of funding from the Arts Council, paving the way for three more projects to go ahead

In the West End a series of solar operated hydraulic lifts will be installed, transporting wheelchair users from Waterloo steps to Waterloo place.

In East London Austrian architects Feld72 have been commissioned for an installation in a car park building in Stratford as part of High Street 2012.

The third major commission is a project between the Architecture Foundation, Berlin-based practice Kaltwasser & Köberling and theatre production company Red Room to build a theatre made completely out of recycled and reclaimed materials.

The LFA runs from 19 June to 4 July 2010.

  • The design of the water-powered lift is by Matthew Lloyd Architects, working with Architecture Inside Out and Price & Myers, with the support of the RIBA, the Royal Engineers and the Royal Parks.

    The steps are usually known as the Duke of York Steps
