London is growing. As central London becomes increasingly unaffordable and as the population continues to expand, many people and businesses are settling beyond the centre. This new NLA Insight Study - informed by in-depth research, interviews with key experts, and workshops - examines the future of the capital’s outer urban centres, exploring the next wave of development taking shape and looking ahead to how the capital could be strengthened as a truly polycentric city - creating a sustainable, liveable city.
London’s local towns offer an opportunity to utilise a smarter, more intensive, affordable and attractive sub(urban) typology that integrates spaces and places for living, working, relaxing, learning and making – making places that work for local communities as well as London as a whole. Discover them in New London Architecture’s London’s Towns research study and accompanying exhibition.
Visit the free exhibition from Wednesday 11 October – Friday 11 January at NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, WC1E 7BT.
