New London Architecture

New digital programme launched

Friday 24 April 2020

Our latest NLA programme is 100 per cent digital. We have been able to replicate almost all of our usual events so that you can enjoy them from the comfort of your own home during lockdown — with the added benefit that they now reach a global audience.

From webinars to Pecha Kucha's to smaller drop-in sessions covering a wide variety of topics, coming up in the next few weeks are:

State of the Market – The impact of COVID-19 on London’s development sector Wednesday 29 April 2020, 10:00 - 11:00

You can find all of our latest events in the 'what's on' section of the website here, with more being added each week

In addition to the digital events, NLA is also establishing a new series of Expert Panels, bringing together key industry experts from across the NLA membership to advise on our core programmes, their rigour and their relevance.
Meeting throughout the year, these multi-disciplinary expert groups will convene on key issues from the design and delivery of housing, to the role of the built environment in improving mental health and wellbeing, to enhancing technical competency. They will act as advisory groups for the NLA, sharing intelligence, and ensuring that our programmes respond even more closely to the key issues identified by the industry and our membership. Our Panels will meet virtually over the next few months, with reports from each meeting shared with our membership.
