As part of the London Festival of Architecture (LFA), our team have been sharing their favourite buildings around London. Focusing on this year’s theme ‘In Common’, we opened the discussion about the architecture we pass on our commute into work or feel inspired by as engineers.
Since its origins in 2004, the LFA runs throughout the month of June each year with the aim to explore architecture, test new ideas and uncover and promote new talent. As well as buildings, the festival celebrates the in-between spaces and the people who use them, with community at its core.
Some of our team’s submissions included:
- Battersea Power Station by Mark Gilmore:
“I grew up around the corner from the power station and it was derelict my whole life. Now it’s visited by thousands of people a day and it’s a mindboggling juxtaposition.”
