The annual International Architecture Showcase is a diverse programme of international exhibitions and events led by London’s embassies and cultural institutes. Held during the London Festival of Architecture (LFA) in June, it's an exciting opportunity to showcase work from across the world and celebrate architects and architecture. Indeed, since its conception the LFA’s mission has been to promote London as a global hub for architectural learning, experimentation, thinking and practice.

The LFA began as the Clerkenwell-centric London Architecture Biennale in 2004 but quickly grew to incorporate locations and events across the whole of London. In 2008, the British Council was asked to join the LFA’s initiating organisations, the Architecture Foundation (AF), the Royal Institute of British Architects London (RIBA) and New London Architecture (NLA), to introduce an international programme to the festival. In 2013 the LFA and the International Architecture Showcase broadened its scope and laid the foundations for the festival and the showcase to become a month-long annual event.
