This multi-event, multi-venue, nine-day festival takes place across the capital to bring remarkable design both old and new to a vast London audience. The V&A and Somerset House will both be major landmarks in the line-up, hosting talks, events and several large-scale installations.
One of the highlights for this year will be conceptual artist Alex Chinneck's A Bullet from a Shooting Star – a 35-metre-tall upside-down electricity pylon which will poke out of the ground near North Greenwich tube station.
Seven 'Design Districts' will offer their own line-up of events and exhibits which showcase local artists and creative industries. Bankside joins the list for the first time this year, with Brompton, Chelsea, Clerkenwell, Islington, Queen's Park and Shoreditch all returning.
