Festival: The London Festival of Architecture, various venues, Southwark, until July 4 2010
From exhibitions and installations to guided tours of inner London and perspectives from as far away as Canada, the London Festival of Architecture's 2010 programme has been exhaustive enough to satisfy even the most hawk-eyed design connoisseurs.
For the final weekend, it switches its attention south of the river for an invasion of Southwark, populating the Bankside area with orchards, mossed buildings, inflatable pavilions, sugar cubes and a pop-up theatre made of recycled materials, where The Jellyfish Theatre will stage a series of plays.
The Festival's take on Tate Modern, which holds a special late-night opening in its honour
A series of green initiatives accompany the project, inspired by the existing Bankside Urban Forest scheme. The National Theatre, Tate Modern and the Design Museum will all open late for architecturally-themed evenings this weekend, and improvised constructions include an Urban Orchard of dozens of fruit trees in a disused site at Union Street.
A "spectacular undulating moss landscape" will also take over the Architecture Foundation’s Tooley Street headquarters as part of an exchange programme between emerging domestic and Norwegian architects.
