London Festival of Architecture 2024

LFA at 20: Reimagine

The London Festival of Architecture is a month long celebration of architecture and city-making, taking place every June across London. The Festival’s mission is to open up discussions around architecture, test new ideas and uncover and promote new talent.

At The Building Society, we’re supporting a number of impactful, insightful and playful events this festival. Both from members of our community and the wider built environment.

Rabbit Warren Street

Warren Street is undergoing a magical makeover by TBS member Able Partners for London Festival of Architecture. Renamed ‘Rabbit’ Warren Street for the occasion, the project will bring an explosion of colour and fun to the area to captivate the local community and visitors. The bold installation likens Fitzrovia to a rabbit warren, with exciting hidden networks to be discovered.

To celebrate the opening of the installation – which will be in place until the end of June – a free street party has been planned to bring together the whole community. Kicking off at 4:30pm, the evening will be a festival-like atmosphere where visitors can learn about the history of Warren Street, discover the top places to eat and drink, and enjoy live music and interactive installations.

LFA Walking Tour: ‘Outsiders & Eccentrics’ Fitzrovia History

Join Able Partners and Elliott Wood for a walking tour on Thursday 13 June of our vibrant Fitzrovia neighborhood. Led by Nick Hennegan, explore the lives and stories of the “outsiders and eccentrics” who helped shape the area.

This tour is part of the ‘Welcome to Warren Street’ activation, encouraging Londoners to venture beyond the bustling main streets and discover the hidden gems that lie beyond.

Reimagining an Intersectional London

Join Women in Architecture, LDN Collective, Considerate Urbanism, UCL, Commonplace and The Building Society, for this special event, where we will be screening a new film based on UCL’s report ‘Structurally Unsound’ followed by a discussion and workshop feeding into a Commonplace’s digital platform.

The film will feature interviews and personal stories from a diverse group of individuals across London. Following the film, a presentation by UCL will delve into the importance of intersectionality in UK society and their research findings, followed by a discussion. The discussion will focus on the understanding of intersectionality, the systemic inequalities that exist and what makes an equitable city.

A facilitated workshop will then be conducted, engaging participants in an experiential and emotional mapping exercise, encouraging them to share their experiences and envision a more equitable future for London.
