New London Architecture

NLQ Issue 35

This issue has a tall buildings focus, including a building review of a scheme that has for decades acted as a wayfinder for the eastern end of Oxford Street – Centre Point.

If we are to truly attend to London’s need for 66,000 homes per year, many say that tall buildings need to be part of that picture. But we must by the same token ensure
that the London we create is not one where the ground plane suffers for the sake of height, and that heritage buildings and wider areas are not blighted. And, a year on from Grenfell,
the focus on safety and maintenance in tall buildings is perhaps more acute than ever before.
