Introducing the new theme for the AJ100 Festival 2021
A Culture of Care
People | Practice | Place | Planet
Following an 18-month period of unparalleled turmoil in the face of a global pandemic, the AJ100 Festival will this year focus attention on how we can create and nurture a culture of care: in our homes, in our community, in the workplace and for our planet. Now, more than ever, it is vital that we look more deeply at the way we work, live, design and build to ensure a healthier and better future for all.
Now in its 26th year, the AJ100 is a firm fixture in the architecture calendar and serves as a definitive record of the UK’s largest architecture practices. The top 100 practices, measured by number of architects employed in the UK, are invited to join us for the annual awards at the AJ100 Festival taking place 20 - 22 September, when the winners of the dedicated AJ100 award categories are revealed.
Practices that are ranked in the top 100 will also be published in the special AJ100 issue and invited to attend our AJ100 Club events over the course of 2021/2022.
The AJ100 Festival is free-to-attend and offers a three day programme of celebration and learning centred around the year’s AJ100 practices, our 2021 award winners and inspirational speakers pioneering new ways of practice.
The daily festival programme features AJ100 awards announcements, case studies, interviews, panel talks and virtual fringe events all focused on cutting-edge sustainability, wellbeing, and design.
