Public London examines the transformation of London's public spaces over the last decade, forming a part of New London's Architecture's 10th anniversary year.

The result of research and interviews conducted over a six-month period, the study examines new projects that have transformed the experience of London's urban realm, drivers behind our changing attitudes to public spaces and new emerging models of design and delivery. It covers the evolution of placemaking; connectivity of the city; ownership, funding and management of public space; how we measure the value of public space; and how London's public spaces will need to adapt to the needs of a growing city over the next decade and more. It also presents over 200 public realm projects either completed over the last ten years or in design.
The study is supported by a major exhibition on show at NLA's Galleries in The Building Centre from April-June 2015.

Public London: 10 years of transforming spaces


Since the turn of the century, attitudes to the public realm in the capital have been transformed as we have come to understand that the spaces between London’s buildings – its streets, squares, green spaces, rivers and parks – are as important as the surrounding buildings in creating a more human city.


NLA unveils the New London Model and public spaces programme


NLA this morning kicked off its Public London programme of events to celebrate 10 years of transformations to the city’s public realm and unveiled its new interactive model for the first time.
