New London Architecture (NLA) is inviting submissions of projects, initiatives and ideas that are supporting the transformation of London’s outer urban centres - from new mixed-use typologies to town centre regeneration and orbital connections.

This call out forms part of London’s Towns: Shaping the polycentric city, a major NLA Insight Study examining the new wave of development outside central London, and the opportunities to deliver high-quality, mixed-use, well-connected places that support London’s future as a liveable city. 
The London’s Towns Showcase will highlight exemplar schemes and ideas, with all selected submissions featuring in a major research publication, distributed to key policy makers, the NLA network, visiting delegations and Londoners. 
The results launch in October, supported by an accompanying exhibition in the NLA Galleries at The Building Centre, WC1, from October – January 2018, alongside a series of supporting events.
