Started in 2003, the London Design Festival is a citywide exhibition of design in its broadest scope, typically featuring large-scale public installations.
More than 200 events will be split across ten Design Districts, each of which constitutes a cluster of venues and events within walking distance. Confirmed districts include Brompton, Clerkenwell, Design District at Greenwich, Peninsula, Islington, Kings Cross, Mayfair, Park Royal, Shoreditch Design Triangle, Southwark South, and William Morris Design Line.
Of particular note are what the festival calls “Landmark Projects” which are large scale design/architectural installations. This year’s landmark projects include Medusa—a mixed reality project by Sou Fujimoto and Tin Drum at the V&A.
