London Festival of Architecture 2019 Programme Launches
The London Festival of Architecture 2019 programme was launched Weds 1st May, with a series of over 400 events exploring this year’s theme of ‘Boundaries’ across London, 1-30 June.
London Bridge will be a hub area for the second year running, reflecting the importance of the changing built environment and globally-famous, landmark architecture we have here.
The programme is designed to offer events that can appeal to anyone: exhibitions and installations, talks and debates, walks and tours, family events, film screenings and a wide range of special events. Highlights of the London Festival of Architecture London Bridge Hub so far include:
Musicity x Low Line 1-30 June
Andrew Logan; no boundaries 6 June
Architecture for the Dead: Burial Grounds & Crypts 6 June
Make Music Day Parade along the Low Line 21 June
Tower Bridge 125th Birthday Weekend 29-30 June
Plus a varied selection of guided, themed walks throughout the month.

The Boundaries theme for this year lends itself perfectly to London Bridge. Life in cities is all about physical and mental boundaries. We are constrained, ordered and defined by borders, fences and walls that in many ways make us comfortable. For architects, however, boundaries are more than a mundane fact of everyday life: they’re something to be challenged.
The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) is Europe’s largest annual architecture event and celebrates London as a global hub of architectural experimentation, practice and debate. The programme is delivered by architecture and design practices and practitioners, cultural and academic institutions, artists and many others. The festival appeals to a huge public audience: in 2018 an estimated 600,000 people attended festival events, most of which were free.
