The London Festival of Architecture is Europe’s biggest annual architecture festival, and returns to the capital from 1-30 June 2018 with over 400 events exploring this year's theme ‘identity’. We celebrate London as a global architectural hub, provoke questions about the life of the city, and promote positive change to its public realm.
