In this issue of New London Quarterly we look at Americans in London. Our New Londoner this time is Sarah Cary, a Texan at British Land and a cyclist with a passion for sustainability across the developer’s portfolio and beyond. Top of their Game is Gensler, founded on near-Hippyish principles by Arthur Gensler in ’60s San Francisco but now making waves in the UK with new of ces and a loose advisory role with Number 10.
Elsewhere in the magazine we continue our quest to give more exposure to up-and-coming practices with a look at Carl Turner Architects and Bell Phillips Architects. There are opinions on subjects ranging from housing for the elderly to Colin Wilson’s sequel to City in the East ... City in the West, plus capital ideas from practices including Rogers Stirk Harbour and Fletcher Priest.
