What’s in a Theme? – Tamsie Thomson

The London Festival of Architecture is now – by some margin – the world’s largest annual architecture festival – taking place each year throughout the month of June. This year we held over 530 separate events: including talks, architectural installations, exhibitions, film screenings, tours, Open Studios, debates, architectural bake offs and much, much more. All this helped the festival engage an audience of well over 600,000 people.

Our theme for this year’s festival was ‘identity’. The theme was picked up by many event organisers and allowed us to explore a range of cultural and political issues that relate both to our city and to architecture more broadly.

In this week’s podcast we announce the theme for the 2019 London Festival of Architecture.  We’re also joined by Tamsie Thomson, Director of the LFA, who talks us through plans for next year’s festival.
