Love Architecture

Love Architecture 2013

Friday 21 June - Sunday 30 June 2013

Love Architecture is over for 2013. Nearly 70 events took place across the South West from 20 - 30 June, with 1000s of members of the public engaging with events from Gloucester to Poole, from Bath to St Ives, Exeter to Swindon.

There were walks, talks, bike rides, an architecural crazy golf course, sandcastle competitions, children's workshops, Ask an Architect, pop-up shops, building tours, a floating cafe event, film events, exhibitions, and much more...

The success of the festival was down to the army of organisers, local members, volunteers, partners, and promoters who we must say a huge thank you to... and maybe we will see you all again next year.

Love Architecture 2014

Yes, we intend to be back in 2014 - possibly at a slightly different time of year - and later in 2013, we willl set up Ideas Cafe events to start the creative thinking. In the meantime, have a look below at the ideas that were discussed for 2013 - not all of which made it onto the programme, but may become good base ideas for 2014.
