New London Architecture


Investigating ways to deliver the quality and quantity of housing that Londoners need

Housing delivery remains the most critical issue for London. With an average increase of almost 4,000 households each year, and a current population of 8.8 million residents, as an industry we must address the challenges this incurs and create opportunities for innovation and new thinking. To keep up with this growth, London must delivery around 52,000 new homes per year according to the latest review of the London Plan. 

The NLA housing programme provides the capital’s leading forum for discussion and debate about how we provide more homes for Londoners, encouraging new ideas and thinking on the future of housing design, delivery and construction.

In 2020, the housing programme will address social value and wellbeing, co-living, the growth of Build-to-Rent, and integrating age groups and communities, asking what new typologies might mean for streets and town centres. Are we equipped to deliver innovative new models of housing? What does the small sites housing policy mean for London? How can we create a truly diverse housing offer so that we are not left behind other global cities in years to come?
