Back to business after the summer, the capital is gearing up for the arrival of the world's design circuit with this year's bigger than ever beforeLondon Design Festival. Once again the nucleus of the action will be the V&A, where visitors will be treated to a soaring timber wave installation from Amanda Levete Architects, and a contemplative fabric folly from the Bouroullec brothers. But, as usual, the action is spread all over town, so to spare your sanity, not to mention a few wasted taxi journeys, here's our edit of the top 25 events.
Check back soon for a tour of design-store packed Pimlico Road, as part of our Street View series, where we'll be updating you about all its festival happenings.
Plus, as soon as the action kicks off, we'll be reporting live from around the city.
