A night of speedy presentations will look at innovative new ideas from both established housing professionals and representatives from NLA’s NextGen cohort.

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.

This event is part of NLA’s year-long Housing Programme, covering key issues such as affordable housing, public sector land, the private rented sector, off-site manufacture, the appropriate densification of housing and how we enable small developers and custom builders.  

'Factory-made Housing: a solution for London?' is a major NLA research paper, exhibition and events programme.
