Are you fond of architecture? Would you like to leave a mark in your neighbourhood? Then this is your chance to shine as London Festival of Architecture comes to E20.

East Village landlord, Get Living has commissioned a spatial installation, ‘Subtle Shifts’ on Victory Parade to mark its 5th anniversary. Created by designers Pidgin Perfect in collaboration with Tenement, this unique setting will encourage East Village residents like you to make it your own, finding your own uses for the space. E20 is without a doubt one of the most creative places to live in London!

Interested? Join us on Saturday 2nd June from 3pm – 4.30pm for the ‘Subtle Shifts’ official launch and listen to a talk from four creative experts across architecture and planning to discuss this year’s theme, ‘identity’. It’s a great chance to get to know like-minded people – you might even bump into your E20 neighbours.

If you can’t make this Saturday, no worries, as throughout June, the London Festival of Architecture will host over 400 events across the capital. A programme of exhibitions, family events, walking tours and stunning architectural installations will explore how subtle changes made to space can lead to wider long-term shifts in the identity of a place – so feel free to share your thoughts.

Charlotte Fletcher, General Manager at East Village said: “E20 is a new neighbourhood, a new community, so the theme of ‘identity’ for this year’s festival was extremely fitting for East Village. Over the last five years we’ve worked to create a new identity for the former Athletes’ Village by bringing in independent retailers and nurturing an environment that people can call home.
