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.
As London’s population grows, the city’s public realm is under increasing pressure to work harder to serve a greater mix of users and support urban resilience. From large scale city-wide schemes to small local interventions, London’s public spaces are undergoing great change.
In this free NLA event powered by PechaKucha, we hear from a range of industry experts on their ideas for the future of London’s public realm. How will technology affect how people interact with public spaces? With changing transport trends, how will London’s streets and roads, which make up 80% of London’s public spaces, transform to support a greater mix of uses? How can the capital celebrate and better utilise its blue spaces, improving reservoirs, rivers and canal-side places?
