The London Festival of Architecture has begun its hunt for participants to take part in the annual architectural celebration 

Running from throughout June, the 2016 festival aims to connect Londoners with the city’s architecture and this year has the theme of ‘community’.

The month-long festival features exhibitions and events organised by the capital’s architectural, cultural and academic institutions.

The festival’s organisers are on the hunt for stand-alone events and practices wanting to take part in the open studios strand of the festival.

London Festival of Architecture director Tamsie Thomson, said: ‘Community is at the heart of successful development in London, and [this year’s event] is a fantastic opportunity for many different people and organisations to come together and demonstrate architecture’s relevance to London’s diverse communities.

‘We will be posing challenging questions in lively and interesting ways. How, for example, can communities genuinely be placed at the heart of responses to London’s housing crisis? How should commercial development adapt to fluid workforces, co-working and other new ways of working? What is the role of leisure and retail in enriching communities through new urban development? The 2016 Festival will be an exciting opportunity to explore how people and communities can address those issues together.’

The call for entries closes on 26 March.
