London Festival of Architecture 2017
Author: Emina Čamdžic, BA Dip. Arch. MA
I will be taking part at this years' London Festival of Architecture. Here is a short info.
Two months ago after submitting my project for the LFA - 2017, I have been informed that my project is accepted in the main programme at the London Festival of Architecture. This has been incredible news for my work. One month ago, I received information that a gallery accepted to exhibit my project, which made me very happy.
More information about my project can be found on the link: www.londonfestivalofarchitecture.org .
The news that my project is going to be part of the LFA was quite amazing, because this is the first time in 14 years since this annual festival, that a project from Bosnia and Herzegovina is accepted and taking part at the LFA. Although there was lack of support from the institutions in BiH on this project, I will still continue to work hard on presenting my project the best way possible.
It is the major event in architecture, with the Venice Biennale, and during the years the architects such as: Richard Rogers, late Zaha Hadid, Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas, Grimshaw, Daniel Libeskind, David Adjaye, Chipperfield, Kengo Kuma, Sou Fujimoto and many others have attended the festival.
The exhibition LFA - 2017 was presented at the Republic. London Gallery in London.
