New London Architecture

Resilient London - deadline 15 July

SUBMIT A PROJECT

SUBMIT A CONCEPT / PRODUCT
New London Architecture (NLA) is inviting submissions of projects that showcase innovative, efficient and sustainable approaches to climate resilience. Selected projects will be included in a new NLA report about London’s climate resilience, launching in September in the lead up to COP26. 
 
From extreme weather events to flooding and overheating, how do we design, build and retrofit to face future climate events in London? How can buildings, infrastructure, technology and wider urban strategies respond to this global challenge? 
 
We’re looking for exemplar projects that push the bar of environmental design and contribute to London’s future resilience. Projects will demonstrate design approaches that respond well to future climatic conditions and maximise carbon savings, adopt circular economy principles, integrate nature and nature-based solutions and those that use innovation and technology to increase resilience.
 
We’re looking for a variety of projects, at various scales and different typologies – infrastructure, masterplans, buildings, street improvements, technology and more. This call out is also open to innovative products, concepts, ideas and toolkits that are relevant to London’s climate resilience.
 
Eligible submissions fall in these categories:
 
1. Greening and nature-based solutions 
2. Circular economy and resilient materials 
3. Infrastructure (including green, blue, SUDs, streets improvements, energy, etc)
4. Resilient buildings (retrofits, zero carbon buildings, circular buildings, etc)
5. Technology and innovation
6. International exemplars
 
To submit projects, case studies or products/concepts, please use the correct submission form indicated on the top right of this page.
 
Projects should be located in London, however there will be a small section dedicated to international projects where these can provide positive and applicable lessons for London.
 
The project showcase will be part of a new report that examines how London is addressing climate resilience. 
 
Deadline for entries:  Thursday 15 July 2021, 5pm.

Please note submissions are ONLY charged if selected for inclusion as part of the report

Synopsis

In the lead-up to COP26 in November 2021, this report will examine the role that London as a world leading city is playing in mitigating climate change, and preparing for future climate events, with a showcase of key projects and initiatives being led in the city. 
 
London is a world leading city, a thriving centre for culture, finance, transport, an economic powerhouse and a global destination. It has proven its ability to respond to crisis and to come out of them stronger, from fires, wars and pestilence. Its resilience is embedded in its city form, with its ability to adapt and change, and in the incredible human capital that is unique to London.
 
And yet today, London is facing one of the greatest crises in its own history – climate change. The most critical issue effecting the entire globe, with consequences that vary according to the geographies, from forests to oceans, from coastal communities to dense cities, from the artic to the equator. What are the main climate risks that cities need to respond to? 
 
The climate emergency not only urges the built environment sector to drastically cut carbon emissions but also poses crucial questions about how our cities will adapt to a changing climate. From extreme weather events to overheating, from flooding to sea level rising, how is London preparing for these challenges? Is London’s built environment sector adapting the way we design, build and retrofit to address future climate shocks? And at the pace required? How can we develop a model of city resilience that is inclusive and ensures protection of the most vulnerable?
 
Drawing on expertise from London and overseas, we look at what it takes to build a more climate resilient city, and the role that cities and city leaders across the globe have to play in supporting the climate agenda on the world stage.

Research aim

• To bring strong messages about the central role of the built environment sector and cities as key player in the climate agenda as part of COP26 engagement activities 
• To identify the main climate risks that London is facing
• To analyse how London is responding to those climate risks and what main strategies are in place to build resilience
• To document how the built environment sector is building climate resilience in infrastructure, buildings and natural environment in the city
• To share knowledge and lessons from other cities on how to create a resilience city
