AECOM Becomes Patron of the London Festival of Architecture

May 18, 2017

18 May 2017 – AECOM is supporting Europe’s biggest annual architecture festival by becoming a patron of the London Festival of Architecture. The event, which runs from 1 – 30 June 2017 celebrates London as a global hub of architectural experimentation, practice and debate.


As a patron, AECOM will share its unique experiences of London, bringing to life the capital’s past, present and future through drawings, photography and interactive technologies such as virtual reality headsets.


Jennifer Dixon, Architecture Leader – Europe, Middle East, India and Africa, AECOM, said: “For decades, AECOM has been a part of London’s changing landscape – AECOM’s collective memory includes many of London’s most inspiring designs. Our design and consulting professionals have shaped this city we know and love, from the Shard and the Leadenhall Building to the Tate Modern, Crossrail and the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park. Our shared vision is to continue to help shape an inspiring and productive city of the future.”


The theme of this year’s festival will be ‘memory’, which will be considered through a wide range of events and activities. In exploring the theme of memory, the London Festival of Architecture aims to encourage the public to look at London in new ways and spark debate among designers, developers and decision-makers about how they can make London a better place.


The festival, now in its 13th year, will take place at venues across London.
