The theme this year is ‘Memory’. London is a city of many layers. Each layer is implanted with the memory of individuals, structures, places, and encounters. King's Cross, Nine Elms and Smithfield Market are indications of how memory is inseparably connected to the character of the city.

London Festival of Architecture Director Tamsie Thomson explained the theme further by saying, “London’s built memories are never far from its present – living on in old place names, the City of London’s medieval street pattern, or London’s rich architectural heritage. Memory is fundamental to a sense of place: something that communities cherish in the face of change and a tool for architects and developers as they achieve change and place further layers of activity and memory on top of all the others.”
