This summer LOBBY is hosting two events at the Architecture Film Festival London! ‘Trailer’ invites all party-lovers to come dance and experience our immersive film experience and scavenger hunt, while the UK premiere of ‘Concrete Love’ is the perfect event for film buffs and architecture aficionados. Tickets now available!
On Thursday 8 June, LOBBY's taking over the Oxo Tower and its amazing industrial event space, Bargehouse, with our super-funky summer party, ‘Trailer’.
Created for the Architecture Film Festival London, ‘Trailer’ provides guests with a script upon entering Oxo Tower, inviting them to follow a trail of clues, while exploring the building and the scenes described in the script. An immersive film experience doubling as a scavenger hunt, guests will make their way through a series of spaces and screenings culminating at the top floor's event space. Here, we'll block out the summer light, turning day into night, transforming the ambiance inside the industrial warehouse space—with its exposed brick, concrete and steel bones—into a colourful dance party, true to LOBBY fashion.

On Saturday 10 June, join us at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA) for the UK Premiere of the German documentary, Concrete Love directed by Maurizius Staerkle-Drux.
Part of the Festival's four main film screenings, Concrete Love paints an intimate and pointed portrait of the complexity and inseparability of life, love, faith, art and architecture.
The film follows the life of Gottfried Böhm, widely regarded as Germany’s preeminent architect and its first Pritzker Laureate. The son of a master builder of churches, he is the patriarch of a modern architecture dynasty to which his three sons Stephan, Peter und Paul now belong. By realising outstanding prominent buildings of their own, the Böhms have managed to step out of the shadow of their famous father. But the ongoing crisis in the German construction industry, among other things, has stoked the fires of competition between the brothers. Gottfried, now 94, still contributes daily to the work on current planning and construction projects. With the death of his wife Elisabeth, also an architect and a key source of inspiration for all four Böhms, the family loses its emotional lodestone. Can the fragile architecture of the family business a viable model for the future?
With an introduction by Regner Ramos, Creative Director and Editor-in-Chief of LOBBY, and a Q&A session with Director Maurizius Staerkle-Drux and LOBBY Editor James Taylor-Foster. To view the trailer, click here.
