A major feature of the London Design Festival each year is the ambitious programme of special projects and installations. We commission the world’s best designers and architects, as well as pioneering new talents, to create something extraordinary in response to a variety of stimuli such as a particular material, a theme or a location. Over the years, they have appeared in some of London’s most prominent and best-loved spaces, including the V&A, Southbank Centre, Tate Modern and Trafalgar Square. In 2015 Greenwich Peninsula joined that list.
The special projects and installations have now become the public face of the London Design Festival, representing spectacular punctuation points around the city. Made possible with the generous patronage of our sponsors who have supported our ongoing quest for ambition and excellence over the years, they serve to showcase the ambition, creativity and experimentation that give London its reputation as the design capital of the world.
