Tonkin Liu (above) and Foster + Partners (right) were two of the architects whose designs helped brighten up the first weekend of the London Festival of Architecture.

In spite of gloomy weather, hundreds of visitors showed up to a briefly pedestrianised Exhibition Road in Kensington to view installations by, among others, 6a Architects, Heatherwick Studio, Lifschutz Davidson Sandilands, Paticas Architecture, and Penoyre & Prasad. The festival continues until 20 July.
