The ninth London Design Festival will run from September 17 to 25 in London, and its organizers expect it will attract more people than ever before.
This festival acknowledges exceptional work in architectural design across the U.K. The main locations where workshops and showcases will be held at this year's event are the Victoria and Albert Museum, St. Paul's Cathedral and the Textile Field.
"We all know design is the engine that drives the creative industries, so this year the London Design Festival will promote design not only as absolutely central to society and to culture - but also to the economy, to growth and the future," said the chairman of the festival, Sir John Sorrell.
The Victoria and Albert Museum is scheduled to have 13 installations over the course of the festival. The Textile Field, a 30-foot installation in the museum displaying different blue and green hues, was created by the Bouroullec Brothers and was developed for individuals to relax and enjoy the Raphael Gallery.
Organizers are expecting nearly 180 partners working at the event and it will be hosting more than 250 events at this year's program.
