What do you care about? This is the question that KPF’s Young Designers Forum are asking as part of the London Festival of Architecture (LFA).
Since its inception in 2004, the LFA has become the world’s largest architecture festival. It runs throughout June each year and celebrates London as a global hub for architecture. The theme for this year’s Festival is ‘Care’. The designers are gathering opinions at kpfcares.com, and results are displayed in an eye-catching graphic that grows cumulatively, reflecting the topics that generate the most interest, visible on the website and displayed as an installation at KPF’s office in Covent Garden.
KPF Young Designers Forum was formed to support architects at the beginning of their careers. The group arranges internal events and talks on a broad range of topics, from equality and diversity within architecture to sustainability and career progression. After a year of working from home, which has disproportionately affected people in the early phases of their careers, the YDF are examining their own experiences and beliefs and asking the population at large: “what do you care about?”
Take part here and see the installation at 7a Langley Street, Covent Garden.
