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 Patron’s 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.  Our Patron’s support allows us to continue expanding the festival’s audience reach as we celebrate London’s architecture sector.   With our Patrons support we engaged a record 600,000+ people in 2018. 

We are a not-for-profit organisation. Our Patron’s support directly helps us expand and develop the LFA as the world’s largest annual architecture festival. 

Our Patrons Programme – valued at £5,000 per year – allows us to work in partnership with a group of London’s most respected architectural firms.

Through the festival we create business opportunities for our Patrons to demonstrate their industry leadership to our wide audience – whether that’s at MIPIM, at our Patron’s Dinner or numerous other events.
