New London Architecture

Embracing better living, Build Back Better powered by PechaKucha

Tuesday 11 August 2020

Ideas for living that aid physical and mental health from inside and outside the home. 

From city wide ideas for better living to improving indoor air quality. We take a look at the ideas that will help to create happier and healthier societies and have a positive impact on our wellbeing.   
Build Back Better is a new initiative by NLA to respond to the current crisis. The series looks into the future, beyond the restrictions of our present situation. We invite innovative thinkers to present thought-provoking ideas and solutions for a resilient post-pandemic London.
