As part of this year’s London Festival of Architecture our London studio will be hosting Boundary-kucha, a light-hearted series of stories exploring the boundaries met by design practices at each stage of their evolution. Freelance consultants Rachel Birchmore and Emma Keyte are currently researching how practices cross evolutionary boundaries, from starting up and creating systems to staying relevant and surviving succession. They have talked to architects at all stages in the lifecycle and will bring together some of their interviewees to discuss how they have overcome many of the boundaries encountered and evolved their practices. BDP Chair Chris Harding will join speakers from Denizen Works, Feilden Fowles, Gbolade Design Studio, Grimshaw, Hawkins\Brown and RCKa together with Neil Murphy of TOWN, Philippa Simpson of V&A and Eleanor Young, RIBA Journal who will give the client and media view.
This free event is aimed at all those who are establishing, developing or future-proofing their own practices and the themes discussed will also be relevant to those starting or developing organisations in other fields. Refreshments will be provided and booking is essential by registering at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/boundary-kucha-short-stories-on-the-evolution-of-practice-tickets-59947626966
Running throughout June the London Festival of Architecture began in 2004 and has since grown to become the world’s largest annual architecture festival, attracting a vast public audience and a global media audience of millions. Most events are free, and are staged by a core festival programming team working alongside architectural and design practices and practitioners, leading cultural and academic institutions, artists and many others.
