Conferences: MoA at the London Festival of Architecture (1-30 June 2015)

The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) is made of public projects selected through an open call, alongside projects delivered by LFA partners, RIBA London Open Studios and events and activities in conjunction with leading cultural and academic institutions. It is an opportunity to present, discuss and challenge current issues within and connected to architecture.
In conjunction with The Guardian and part of the London Festival of Architecture 2015, Museum of Architecture (London, UK) will showcase community engagement in architecture and placemaking through a series of talks and panel discussions.
In an increasingly competitive global context, London is working hard to remain the city of choice for business – from start ups to established firms. Central to this is creating environments in which people want to live and work – how can these same people influence the evolution of the city?
Discussion 1: Placemaking and Technology
9 June, 6:30-8:30pm
 
Discussion 2: Businesses in Communities and Vacant Buildings
16 June, 6:30-8:30pm
 
Discussion 3: Public Open Days and Neighbourhood Streets 
23 June, 6:30-8:30pm
 
Discussion 4: Well-being and Health in Cities
30 June, 6:30-8:30pm
