New London Architecture


Championing the professional development of young leaders

NextGen is an NLA initiative which identifies and supports young talent within the industry, and champions the professional development of the built environment’s future leaders. NextGen members are profiled in 50% of the full NLA programme, creating many opportunities to showcase new ideas and projects to the wider NLA network. 

A programme of focused NextGen events connects young professionals with peers in the industry, allowing them to expand professional networks and develop skills; informal PechaKucha presentations provide a forum to profile new ideas, projects and initiatives, while mentoring events and talks with professionals offer advice and information on working in a multi-disciplinary industry.

NextGen is roughly aimed at those who are 2-5 years into their career or aged between 25-35.

Key objectives
  • Champion the new generation of industry experts 
  • Connect emerging talent with established industry professionals
