From 1 – 30 June the V&A + RIBA Architecture Partnership will be collaborating with the London Festival of Architecture to host installations, talks and events across RIBA’s London locations and at the V&A, responding to the festival’s annual theme of ‘Boundaries’.

Highlights include a new commission for the RIBA Architecture Gallery. Playing the Picturesque by architectural design studio You + Pea is an interactive installation which explores the boundaries between virtual and physical space. Additionally, Etcetera Studio will present Above and Beyond, a structure playing on the notion of illusion, which allows visitors to imagine a space where alternative futures are possible.

Another key event to look forward to includes a lecture by Juhani Pallasmaa on the role of the image in architecture; the RIBA + VitrA Intergenerational Talk between Grafton Architects and Brazilian practice Aleph Zero, winners of the 2016 and 2018 RIBA International Prize.
