About the Architecture Foundation

A coalition of architects, clients, professionals and the public campaigning for a better built environment

Mission

The Architecture Foundation brings new voices to the conversation about architecture and urbanism in London.  It pursues this mission by:

- supporting the city's architects at the beginning of their careers

-  providing a platform for the best architects from across the world to contribute to thinking about London's future 

-  informing London's citizens about the city's built heritage and empowering them to contribute to discussions about its development

We host debates, make films, commission critical writing, curate exhibitions, publish books and engage industry figures directly fostering new relationships and collaboration to help shape the quality of the built environment. 


Background

Established in 1991 as the UK's first independent architecture centre, The Architecture Foundation has organised hundreds of design initiatives, events, exhibitions and education programmes in public venues across Britain and internationally.

The Architecture Foundation is a registered charity, with a board of trustees composed of individuals from a wide cross-section of interests and professions including architecture, art, business, policy, media, engineering and law.
