Call for entries: London Festival of Architecture Fringe

Levitt Bernstein LFA

The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) is calling for inventive ideas for its first official fringe programme

The festival is inviting proposals from anyone with an interest in London and its built environment –  including architects, artists and developers.

The resulting programme will form the first ever official LFA Fringe, to sit alongside a core festival programme organised directly by the LFA team and festival partners.

Running throughout June 2017, the theme for next year’s festival is ‘memory’. Entries for events and activities at the festival should demonstrate the relevance of London’s architecture to its past, present and future.

The programme is being developed by festival director Tamsie Thomson and a team including Evening Standard editor Sarah Sands, MP and former culture minister Ed Vaizey, Croydon Council chief executive Jo Negrini, Duggan Morris director Mary Duggan, Bennetts Associates director Rab Bennetts and V&A design director David Bickle.

Thomson said: ‘The London Festival of Architecture is all about participation, and we want people to interpret memory in whatever way they see fit. It’s a concept that is fundamental to a sense of identity and place, and allows us to explore people’s experiences of London, and engage people in ways that gives them a say on London’s future.

‘We’re excited also to introduce an official LFA Fringe for the first time in 2017. The term “fringe” implies something that is unstuffy, creative and informal – perhaps even a little haphazard and anarchic. That’s the spirit of the LFA at its best: engaging with people on easy terms rather than excluding or preaching to them.’

Now heading into its 13th year, entries to participate in the month-long festival will close on 28 February 2017. For more information, visit www.londonfestivalofarchitecture.org
