LFA Community Pavilion in Granby Place
As part of this year's London Festival of Architecture (LFA), Collective Works have co-designed a pavilion with Ongéan for Granby Place, which will act as an inclusive temporary space that will be used for a range of activities and community lunches.
The overall aim with the space is to connect a cross-section of Londoners in unexpected ways. During LFA and Waterloo Food Month, the space will act as a gathering place where existing groups can congregate and individuals can form new connections.
The London Festival of Architecture is hosting a range of events around London over June. This year, the theme of the festival is 'Identity' and, as usual, the programme aims to celebrate London as a centre for architectural experimentation. The LFA will see a godzilla drawing workshop, an open festival to all interested in the creative industry, home improvement consultations, and a project planning workshop at the Community Pavilion. Some other events taking place in Waterloo include an exhibition exploring what defines a city's indentity, loo tours from Waterloo to West End, and The Alternative Architect's launch at Build Studios.
As part of the Waterloo Food Month programme, Phillip Oppenheim, owner of Cubana, will host a discussion panel at the LFA Community Pavilion on Wednesday 11 July. The event, Sustainability: Beyond the Buzzword, will address the question of what being sustainable actually means for a restaurant or food business. As the use and abuse of the buzzword 'sustainability' has grown, the discussion panel will host key speakers to expand on the actual meaning of sustainability.
