London’s Growing Up! A decade of building tall


Thursday 09 May 2024
18:15 - 19:45

As part of the NLA Lates series, join us for the launch of our latest report ‘London’s Growing Up! A decade of building tall’.
This evening celebrates the 10th anniversary of London’s Growing Up!, looking back at the past decade of building tall. This year’s report presents a holistic picture of 10 years of building tall, its challenges, opportunities, and best practice, bringing together industry experts to share lessons learnt and discuss one of the capital’s most debated topics.
Since launching in 2014, the NLA London Tall Buildings Survey has been the only comprehensive review of tall buildings in London driving the debate on how tall buildings can contribute to the city, analysing key trends and providing insights into policy, construction and design. Ten years later we look at the exemplar projects, the evolution of the attitudes and perceptions towards tall buildings, questioning what the future of tall buildings will look like in the coming years.
