Selected by an international jury advised by London-based experts as part of the New London Awards 2017, this publication contains the best new and proposed projects in London.
Spanning from small community-led schemes, to big infrastructure, masterplans and housing development, the projects that feature in this publication actively contribute to improve London as a place to live, work and enjoy, and have been selected for their quality of design, innovation and longevity, and wider contribution to placemaking in the city.
Excerpt from the introduction
It is always a joy to sift through the large piles of entries to the NLA Awards, to see so many well-designed buildings and projects that play such an important role in the life of this city. In these awards we are celebrating not just design and detailing but the contribution that good architecture, planning and development make makes to the surrounding environment, the local community and to the key issues the capital faces.
The annual publication of the Awards, which is distributed around the world, is a fantastic advertisement for London as well as those that work here; it highlights not just the winners but the breadth and depth of the professional skills that deliver new and refurbished buildings and new projects across the capital.
Once again, I would like to thank our excellent jury from Paris, Stockholm, New York and Glasgow - they are able to take an objective view of the contribution that our shortlisted projects make to London - and our team of local expert assessors who provide the judges with such invaluable support.
