SOM Participates in London Festival of Architecture

In June, 2019, SOM will participate in the London Festival of Architecture, the world’s biggest annual architecture festival. On Saturdays throughout the month, SOM architects will lead tours of The Stratford Hotel & Lofts at Manhattan Loft Gardens.

Together with the Manhattan Loft Corporation, SOM architects will share insight on the design of the 42-story building. Visitors will have access to a selection of loft apartments, and hotel amenities, as well as the sky gardens of the double-cantilevered tower.

Additionally, on June 18th, SOM Partner Kent Jackson and Harry Handelsman, CEO of the Manhattan Loft Corporation, will present a talk about the building. 

The London Festival of Architecture is a city-wide annual event that includes a broad program of events and activities for people of all ages. The festival, which includes more than 400 events presented by a mix of organizations and individuals, aims to broaden the conversation around architecture and cities. The theme for the 2019 festival is "boundaries."
