London Festival of Architecture // 2018

The month of June plays host to the London Festival of Architecture, the worlds largest annual architecture festival, hosting a series of events around this year’s theme ‘identity’. During this time, the London Schools of Architecture host their own end of year summer exhibitions and following some morning site visits on a number of Helyer Davies Architects projects in London, we took the chance to visit some of these exhibitions showcasing the hard work of students at the University of Westminster, The AA and The Bartlett (UCL).

The exhibitions have become an important marker for all London Schools of Architecture, and the carefully choregraphed spaces become works of art in their own right. However, the breath-taking work on display was an inspiration and credit should be given to those who have worked hard over the past year producing drawings and models that you could spend hours enjoying.

Each University has different design studios focusing on themes varying from exploring new material technologies, to creating new architectural manifestos, but a highlight of the day was The Bartlett. In their newly refurbished building by architects HawkinsBrown, The Bartlett has grown to become a front runner in Schools of Architecture in the UK and it is clearly evident from the work on display why they are so highly revered.

Photos do not give justice to some of the work, so it is highly recommended that anyone interested in visiting some of these exhibitions do so sooner rather than later! Opening times vary and further details can be found via the links below;
