Our LFA architecture firms educational visit is designed to provide young architects, interior designers, architects and students of architecture the opportunity to experience and learn about how responsible architects are committed to strengthen their working practices to create architecture and urbanism that has a more positive impact on the world around us.
On Thursday 30th June from 9.30 to 18.00 we will be visiting some of the most influential architecture firms in London to discover their ethos and their commitment to create a better built environment.
The architecture educational tour is free thanks to our valuable partner Valcucine, an Italian design brand that has been standing out for the design and production of high-end kitchens unique in their kind, revolutionising the paradigms of the kitchen industry to deliver excellence in terms of sustainability, innovation and craftsmanship.
Architecture firms we will visit are:

- Pollard Thomas Edwards: an architecture practice specialising in the design of homes, neighbourhoods, public and mixed-use buildings throughout the United Kingdom.
