Where are London based consultancies working? What kind of projects are they delivering? What innovations and new technologies are being developed for use at a global scale?

Over 220 international projects feature in the latest NLA Insight Study and exhibition, London: Design Capital, and the projects span 65 countries. In a lively exchange of ideas we will hear from industry experts delivering these projects, investigating the breadth and scale of the London’s global reach.

The format, Pecha Kucha (ペチャクチャ), was devised in Tokyo in 2003 by the English architect Mark Dytham and has turned into a massive global celebration of design, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. The format makes presentations concise, keeps things moving at a rapid pace and holds its audience. 
Taking place during the major exhibition, London: Design Capital, this event is also a key part of NLA’s expanding International Dialogues programme which is focused on connecting London with other major cities around the world in constructive dialogue about the future of cities.
