The program for the opening day of Architecture Week here in the UK just landed in my inbox…
Architecture Week Launch

13.00 – 17.00
music * performance * installation * demonstration
Freeness (13.00 – 14.00 and 15.00 – 16.00)

Urban Freeflow (13.00 – 14.00 and 15.00 – 16.00)
Free-running is about finding new ways through the city landscape – climbing, leaping, somersaulting obstacles in your path (such as giant stone Lions). The Urban Freeflow London team show us how its done.
Architecture Week Speakers’ Corner Needs You! (14.00 – 15.00)
Hosted by Maxwell Hutchinson, architect and BBC LONDON 94.9FM broadcaster. This is your chance to address an audience in Trafalgar Square.
Red Ladies (16.00)
Performance group the Clod Ensemble salute the Square’s heritage as a site of political protest and stage a (mock) political rally. Be vigilant! Women dressed in red may try to solicit your support.
Superconductor (All afternoon)
A multitude of entrances, exits, corridors and courtyards in which to roam, explore or sit quietly and contemplate. A bold and adventurous temporary artwork by artists Gaia Alessi and Richard Bradbury.
Moose (All afternoon)
Moose is a graffiti artist … with a difference. Leaving a temporary imprint through the environmental friendly process of removing dirt with water, he will change the way you see the Square.
