This year Barnet Council teamed up with the London Festival of Architecture (LFA) for the first time to deliver a series of events celebrating architecture, local art and cultural assets within the borough.

The LFA ran throughout the month of June, delivering a rich cultural programme of installations, exhibitions, workshops, talks and special events that bring together architects and the public.

With more than 80 events, exploring this year’s theme ‘In Common’, Barnet’s LFA programme was packed full of exciting activities for all ages to get involved.

The “Connecting Colindale: A Flight Path Folly” designed by Andre Kong Studio and Wayward installation in Colindale Park was inspired by Colindale’s aviation history and connections to the Royal Air Force. The flight-path shaped installation aimed to enhance the visibility of Barnet’s green spaces.

‘Let’s Meet on the Edge’ was composed of three nature-based creative reuse installations, starting at Station Road and reaching up to the High Streets, providing residents and visitors to Edgware with an alternative map to Edgware for the Festival, highlighting local histories which have been lost in urban development and disconnected green spaces.

This design by locally based 'Edgy Collective' Adrienne Lau, Daniella Levene and Leila Taheri was selected as the result of an LFA design competition 'More Edgware, Less Anywhere' run in partnership with Barnet Council, Ballymore and TfL.
