London's future as an adaptable, open and smart city is critical in ensuring it remains a thriving centre for business which can compete globally. How do we build for this future? How do we shape a resilient city that can adapt and prosper in the face of fundamental shifts?

The physical spaces in which we interact, collaborate and innovate are critical in creating an integrated city. So, how should the built environment respond?
NLA will host discussions in this half-day conference, bringing together key industry experts to look at issues such as attracting and retaining talent; the adaptability of buildings; and the role of work within wider regeneration plans, further exploring the recommendations to come out of the NLA Insight Study: WRK / LDN.
Throughout Autumn, we will be bringing together experts working across the industry for discussions, presentations, tours and demonstrations. How should Sadiq be planning for the future of work? The full programme can be found here
