As the world’s largest annual architecture festival, the London Festival of Architecture (LFA) offers you a platform to get your voice heard, test new ideas, celebrate your work, start a debate, meet new clients, get noticed, make a point, publish research, build something new, bring your team together, meet new people or change our city for the better.


The London Festival of Architecture has always proved to be a platform for vigorous debate – both about our theme and about wider issues affecting London.

On our Views Pages we give space to…other less-heard voices to express their views and ideas. These are their opinions and not necessarily those of the Festival. 
At the same time, power is not just about the social sustainability…It can also be interpreted from an environmental perspective, through the study of energy resources, our built and natural context, and our life and wellbeing through the lens of the ecological challenges of our planet.


The point about power, therefore, does not lie in its possession but in what it achieves…For me, power must always be used to effect positive change.
On an individual level, this means how we can inspire and empower one another and, on a professional level, it means the ways in which we can lead by example and instil a sense of purpose throughout our organisations.  Ros Morgan
