New London Architecture

NLQ Issue 45

When we look back at the history of London, this COVID period will be a key spike of interest. But will this spike of the 2020 pandemic usher in a new acknowledgment that the capital is about more than just the centre?
Will it underline the importance of human contact and happenstance meetings in what was once called ‘the office’? And will it change transportation methods and systems, across and through the city, for good?

It is too early to tell, of course, but this issue of New London Quarterly is a snapshot of the thinking about some of what we have been through, and what is in store.
