ARCHIVIBE is proud to partner with the 2020 London Festival of Architecture & BowerBird in presenting a public vote contest, “The power of architecture to impact my life”.
We want to involve you into the discussion around architecture and London.
Architecture shapes our cities and places, our social and cultural values, and our daily lives:
architectures that changed the skyline or the views around us, buildings that shaped our daily routine or has helped a place or community for the better, architectures that changed the fortunes of a place, architectures that involve us, or just make our skin crawl.
All the architectures have been submitted during May and form the basis of the public vote.
You will be able to vote (until Tuesday 30 June 3:00 pm CET) on each building to decide which of these projects has the most powerful impact on people’s lives.
Which London building has impacted your life the most?

London’s first ecological tall building and an instantly recognisable addition to the city’s skyline, this headquarters designed for Swiss Re is rooted in a radical approach − technically, architecturally, socially and spatially. Forty-one storeys high, it provides 46,400 square metres net of office space together with an arcade of shops and cafés accessed from a newly created piazza. At the summit is a club room that offers a spectacular 360-degree panorama across the capital.
