Submission guidelines

New London Architecture is inviting submissions of projects that showcase best practice in the planning, design and construction of sustainable high-density developments.

Since launching in 2014, the NLA London Tall Buildings Survey has been the only comprehensive review of tall buildings in London driving the debate on how high-density development can contribute to the city, analysing key trends and providing insights into policy, construction and design. 
 
But the market and perceptions of tall buildings are changing, and so the Survey will evolve. With changes in planning policies, the cost of construction and living crises, and pressure on the sustainability and viability of schemes, can tall buildings provide innovative solutions that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable? 
 
The Project Showcase will be part of our “Sustainable Skylines” report, sharing best practices in the planning, design and construction of sustainable high-density developments. The 2023 Survey will also provide the annual pipeline update, developing insights into planning policies, attitudes towards density and the climate agenda in London. 

Eligibility

— Timeframe: 2020-2022. Projects can be at all stages of delivery from design and planning, to under construction and completed
— Location: we are looking for innovative high-rise schemes in London or elsewhere in the world. 
— Type: projects should be tall buildings. In line with the new definition by the London Plan, we are expanding the scope to include not just buildings of 20+ storeys but any building of at least 6 storeys or 18 metres in height
— Permission: where applicable submitters must secure proper permissions from the client prior to submission. There is no limit to the number of submissions from any one company, however, submitters are encouraged to consult with other team members before submitting to avoid duplicate entries
 
Entrants agree that NLA is granted non-exclusive reproduction rights to all successful submissions for NLA’s advertising, promotion, publication and online purposes directly related to the NLA Tall Buildings research.

About the London Tall Buildings Survey 2023

Overview
Since launching in 2014, the NLA London Tall Buildings Survey has been the only comprehensive review of tall buildings in London driving the debate on how high-density development can contribute to the city, analysing key trends and providing insights into policy, construction and design. 
 
But the market and perceptions of tall buildings are changing, and so the Survey will evolve. With changes in planning policies, the cost of construction and living crises, and pressure on the sustainability and viability of schemes, can tall buildings provide innovative solutions that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable? 
 
NLA’s London Tall Buildings Survey 2023 will provide the annual pipeline update, developing insights into planning policies, attitudes towards density and the climate agenda in London. Under the theme “Sustainable Skylines” we will share best practices in the planning, design and construction of sustainable high-density developments. 
 
Lines of enquiry
  • What is the current pipeline of tall buildings in London and how does it compare with previous years? How have changes in the political and economic landscape affected construction and high-rise development in the capital in 2022?
  • Can tall buildings provide innovative solutions that are financially, socially and environmentally sustainable?
  • How will the changes to the planning system and new fire safety regulation impact on new tall developments in the capital? 
  • How can tall buildings positively contribute to London’s net zero carbon targets? What is the role of tall buildings in pushing the wellbeing and quality of life agenda?
