Build Back Better, rethinking the high street — Powered by PechaKucha


Monday 06 July 2020
16:00 - 17:00


This Pecha Kucha will hear from built environment leaders about ideas for rebooting retail and hospitality environments and reshape the future of our high streets.
Build Back Better is a new initiative by NLA to respond to the current crisis. The series looks into the future, beyond the restrictions of our present situation. We invite innovative thinkers to present thought-provoking ideas and solutions for a resilient post-pandemic London. 
Now is time to rethink the high streets: What will hotels and shops look like after the pandemic? Is this an opportunity for a new localism? Could meanwhile uses positively transform our high streets? Will new mixed-use spaces end with the use class system?
