New London Architecture

NLQ Issue 44

With so much of our lives still in pandemic-flux, it is perhaps reassuring to encounter any kind of ‘business as usual’. Our ‘New Londoners’ this issue, Roger Madelin and Emma Cariaga of British Land, oblige by building a ‘new town centre’ for the capital at Canada Water, which should provide some succour to readers seeking a vision of life after COVID.
