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: Friday 9 July 2021, 5pm.
Please note submissions are ONLY charged if selected for inclusion as part of the report
