What is NLA?
New London Architecture (NLA) is London’s centre for excellence for the built environment. Our purpose is to make London a better place to live, work and visit.
We explore the built environment and bring the industry together, encouraging debate, learnings and examination of buildings and all the spaces in-between. We do this through a busy year-round programme of research, events, festivals, exhibitions, publications, promoting debate and discussion about the future of cities.
Our fast-growing membership spans across public and private sectors, in London, UK and internationally, and we have two central London public exhibition galleries both with giant interactive models of central London, where anyone can come to learn about future plans for London.
