This June sees the return of London Festival of Architecture. To celebrate, the Soane is launching a programme of pop-up exhibitions and events centred around LFA 2019's theme of Boundaries.
30 May to 16 June
Are Museums places where we just look at objects, or social spaces to participate and interact? Originally launched for the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale, Proposal B is a pop-up exhibition by design duo Peter Salter and Fenella Collingridge that blurs the distinctions between furniture, art and architecture. Installed in the Museum's Foyle Space, Proposal B provides spaces for visitors to sit and moving parts to manipulate, creating a platform for conversation and interaction.

Coinciding with the installation of Proposal B, Salter and Collingridge come to the Museum for a special evening to discuss the project and its formation. The evening includes a drinks reception and a chance to explore the Museum after hours.
5 June to 9 June
Soane built his museum as an 'academy of architecture'. But how will architecture be disseminated in the future? Students from the Architectural Association's Intermediate Unit 13 speculate on architectural academies of the future in this pop-up exhibition.
Contribute to our large-scale art installation transform the fence that defines the boundary between the museum and the surrounding city. With spotlight talks by the Soane Museum Youth Panel.
Inspired by the architectural seats of Proposal B, this free, drop-in workshop offers families a chance to construct their own chairs out of various materials - from miniature lolly stick chairs to newspaper constructions.
