This June, Ireland is the country to be. For art and architectural lovers, The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) has the greatestt interess. Some of the best architeture public projects are selected through an open call, alongside with projects delivered by LFA partners. Events and activities in conjunction with leading cultural and academic institutions will be happening at the same time. It is an opportunity to present, discuss and challenge current issues within and connected to home architecture as well as landscape architecture.
Architecture and design gather together at Ireland creating a programme for LFA that includes workshops and events across the city, including New Horizon, We Built This City and a talk titled Who’d be a Young Architect.
Museums, architects, designers, and more will join forces to explore how work spaces—and the nature of work itself—are shifting in today’s landscape architecture.
Architects including Clancy Moore, TAKA, Steve Larkin, and Hall McKnight have collaborated on two temporary structures in King’s Cross. “New Now Next” gathers the aforementioned group for a discussion about the future of the Ireland’s architectural landscape.
Installations held at the festival:
GIANT DOLLS’ HOUSE: Go to Shelter on Old Street. Grab a shoebox. Make a model room. Watch as the completed boxes are assembled into a giant house. 1-10 June
IRISH DESIGN: The festival has a strand all about architecture and design in Ireland. A good place to start is the two temporary structures to be installed in Lewis Cubitt Square, King’s Cross, where you’ll find talks, performances and exhibitions.
WALTHAMSTOW: This rapidly changing area, where all our friends seem to be buying houses, is the focus of some kind of mapping project to identify community assets and then stick QR codes around them to help tell stories.
