London's Towns: Shaping the polycentric city

Wednesday 11 October – Thursday 11 January 2018

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

Exploring the important role town centres are playing in accommodating London's population growth, this exhibition showcases the results from our latest Insight Study - showing how they are being reshaped to provide not only great places to live, but also to work, to serve the needs of local communities while supporting London as a whole.

From the evolution of London’s towns over time, to the key areas of future growth and the transport investments that are unlocking them, we explore the multi-faceted role towns must play in the future. 
 
A display of developments, ideas and initiatives showcase the schemes currently underway across outer London - from masterplans, mixed-use buildings, workspaces and public realm improvements, to retail, leisure and community interventions. 
 
A future-gazing section displays the results from our Station Sites Charrette, looking into the potential of station sites across London in supporting growth - exploring conceptual design responses to unlocking these complex sites.

London's Towns: Shaping the polycentric city

London is growing. As central London becomes increasingly unaffordable and as the population continues to expand, many people and businesses are settling beyond the centre. This new NLA Insight Study - informed by in-depth research, interviews with key experts, and workshops - examines the future of the capital’s outer urban centres, exploring the next wave of development taking shape and looking ahead to how the capital could be strengthened as a truly polycentric city - creating a sustainable, liveable city.
