As with all our best work at NLA, London’s Growing Up! was a product of collaboration with our members, and we still work with all those companies and individuals today - including Shaun Andrews at GL Hearn, who now at Nexus Planning is working with us to develop our Wellbeing programme, and Stuart Baillie, who in his new role at Knight Frank has worked with us to develop our research in its most recent iteration, and chairs our NLA Expert Panel on Tall Buildings. Caro Communications, who supported the PR on the exhibition, are long time collaborators and friends.
Peter Murray and NLA are often put in the pro tall buildings camp during TV debates, but our aim has always been to provide the forum for an open and informed debate. Our position has always been that quality towers, respectful of their context, have their place in the city - and we have long called for greater 3D digital modelling to provide greater clarity to all in decision making.
I’m very proud of the role that NLA plays in providing a forum for that debate, the way our whole team pulls together to make anything happen, and our part in capturing the imagination of all those who care about London.
