New London Architecture

The Changing Face of London

The first exhibition in the NLA galleries when we launched in 2005 was ‘The Changing Face of London’, which looked at a number of opportunity areas and what was planned for them. Since that time London has experienced an astonishing level of change. In 2020 we chronicled the remarkable transformation of large areas in the capital over the last 15 years.

This is a historic moment in the life of Londoners and the way we shape our city together. After the pandemic, imagining, designing and planning London will never be the same. It is precisely these unprecedented times that makes it the more relevant to understand the achievements and the lessons we can learn from the past 15 years, as we look ahead to how our city may need to adapt over the next 15 years. With our research we revisit the sites shown in the 2005 exhibition to see how their promise has been fulfilled. We also look at more recent opportunity areas with proposals still to be delivered. The accompanying report — a unique document for tomorrow — will discuss the drivers for development, as well as the obstacles and the future challenges.
