Emerging ideas and technologies for the built environment
The Mayor of London has set out an ambition to make London the world’s smartest city. As a data-rich, global centre for learning with good investment in tech-innovation; London is already an established global hub for smart technologies across multiple sectors.
NLA’s new Urban Innovation programme will explore the opportunities represented by technological innovation across property, planning, architecture, construction, engineering and city management.
At this time of rapid change and digitisation, the programme aims to connect sectors and support the built environment industry to navigate and leverage emerging technologies and practices. As well as examining the impact of technologies on London, it will champion the role of London as an incubator for innovation in property and city-making.
