Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
By 2050 the global population will reach 9 billion people, 66% of these will live in cities. In order to adapt to the challenges brought about by this urban population boom The City of London is becoming ‘A Smarter City’. By making changes to the way we connect and respond to architecture and the built environment we can increase The City’s resilience. The Square Mile’s high quality, flexible buildings and infrastructure provide significant capacity for growth, with a distinctive character derived from a diverse mix of buildings, uses, streets, spaces and unrivalled heritage and culture.
Join us at The City Centre along with three of the shortlisted entrants to our Smart Buildings competition to have a lively debate about “Smart” solutions to some of the architectural challenges within The City of London. This free event will include presentations from Endpoint, McGregor Coxall’s Mike Cowdy, Wayne Head from Curl la Tourelle Head Architecture and Ben Galuza from Elementa Consulting.
