A major feature of the London Design Festival each year is the ambitious programme of installations that we call our Landmark Projects. First introduced in 2007, 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, these installations have appeared in some of London’s most prominent and best-loved spaces, including the V&A, Southbank Centre, Tate Modern and Trafalgar Square. This year, Greenwich Peninsula joins that list.
The Landmark Projects have now become the public face of the London Design Festival, representing spectacular punctuation points around the city. They serve to showcase the ambition, creativity and experimentation that give London its reputation as the design capital of the world.
The installations are the result of multiple partnerships between designers, fabricators and venues. Crucially, our Landmark Projects are made possible with the generous patronage of our sponsors who have supported our ongoing quest for ambition and excellence over the years.
