Walkable London: Upgrading the urban prosperity engine

Friday 15 December 2017

13:15-13:45

NLA Guest Galleries, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, WC1E 7BT

Fully booked - New date added! Go!

Free lunchtime talk, with Patrik Schumacher as part of ‘Walkable London: Upgrading the urban prosperity engine’.

All over the world, trends are being observed towards pedestrianising whole districts rather than individual streets.
 
In this exhibition, Zaha Hadid Architects proposes “Walkable London”, a full-scale network of pedestrian routes which will create corridors of activation across the capital. 
 
Transforming just a few streets will hardly make a big difference in terms of congestion, pollution, safety, public health, economic benefits and social capital. To make walking part of a daily routine, a full pedestrian network is needed as an integral part of the city’s transport infrastructure.
 
The UK capital has seen some great examples of pedestrianisation that revitalised the whole districts. Based on our experience of working in 44 countries, Zaha Hadid Architects is presenting a tangible strategy that connects these disparate pedestrianised zones, and making London the number one walking city in the world.
