    London: Linking Cities to Memories

    The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) spread across the capital in different venues last June. This year’s edition saw over 450 events scheduled in every corner of the city.

    Tamsie Thomson, Director of LFA, shared in an official press release that this year’s “Memory” theme is fundamental to how people experience any city, and London is no different as a rich source of memories, old and new.

    A major highlight of the LFA 2017 was the Dulwich Pavilion. The Dulwich Picture Gallery held a design competition and selected IF_DO to design the pavilion entitled After Image. The team implemented a series of translucent mirrored screens—some fixed, some movable—reflecting and disrupting the context. They designed a timber truss roof and surrounding veil which creates a canopy-like environment whose shadows and reflections of shadows added to the layering of images, and to the interplay of space, perception and memory.
