Supporting the London Festival of Architecture

In March 2017 a research paper by the Mayor's Intelligence team revealed:

  • London’s architecture sector produced £1.7 billion for the economy in 2015. 
  • There were approximately 22,800 jobs in London’s architecture sector in 2015. One-in-four jobs in the UK’s architecture sector were based in London.
  • Architecture adds to London’s international competitiveness. For instance, around a third of the total number of jobs in London’s architecture sector were taken by non-UK nationals in 2015. 

We're proud to sponsor and help deliver the London Festival of Architecture, a city-wide celebration of architectural experimentation, thinking and practice. 

What is the London Festival of Architecture?

An annual city-wide celebration of architecture and architectural talent in London, which takes place throughout June.

It brings architects and communities together to examine how to make our city a better place. It highlights the unique pool of creative talent that London has to offer and promotes London as a leading international centre of learning and creativity.

The 2017 theme of 'Memory' explores how London is a city of layers, each infused with memory: of people, buildings, places and experiences. London’s built environment, with memories bound up within it, is fundamental to how people experience the city.
