This select group of London’s most respected architectural practices are at the forefront of supporting and leading the profession. Throughout the year we work with our patrons to shape our annual programme and create bespoke opportunities for them to demonstrate their leadership in the profession.

As well as receiving a package of unique benefits, our Patrons’ support allows us to continue the festival’s vital work democratising the discussion around architecture, uncovering new talent, and campaigning on issues around equality and diversity in the sector.

Our Patrons’ support allows us to continue expanding the festival’s audience as we celebrate London’s architecture sector.

We are a unique cultural organisation. Our Patrons’ support directly helps us expand and develop the LFA as the world’s largest annual architecture festival.
