Part of LFA @ Canary Wharf
Architectural models, together with photographs by Grant Smith, showcase Article 25’s Designs for a Positive Alternative to Poverty. This architectural charity empowers communities to use design, engineering and construction skills that lift them towards a brighter future. By combining skilled local workers with an unskilled local workforce, and channelling that community effort towards building schools, hospitals and homes in communities struck by disaster, conflict and poverty, Article 25 improves access to health, education and safe homes. ‘We change things with – and not to – these communities, to create a boundless legacy of better livelihoods. We dare to dream big, and we dare to ‘work small’, taking our detailed drawing-board dreams towards real world problems and tackling them head on!’
The London Festival of Architecture is the world’s largest annual architecture festival taking place throughout June and this is just one of the events taking place at Canary Wharf as part of this year’s LFA, brought together by the theme of Boundaries. See also:
