Today, the entire city – streets, cafés, public spaces and homes – is a place of work. As the speed of technological change accelerates, the boundaries between working, living and leisure become ever more blurred. This publication details the changing nature of work in a time of flux: both internationally, technologically and culturally. What do we need for the future? Where will we working?

In a post-Brexit world, London will have to work harder than ever to compete on a global level to attract and retain the best talent. Availability, affordability and quality of workspace will be critical, yet space for commercial and industrial uses are under threat as the demand for housing pushes up land prices and planning policies favour conversion of offices to residential use. 
 
Informed by roundtables and interviews with over 70 representatives from across business and the built environment, as well as policy and literature review, this Insight Study publication details NLA’s year-long research into London’s workplaces, examining how London can ensure its future resilience through its provision of space and land for business.
 
The accompanying Showcase publication presents innovative examples of workplace design taking place in London, representing the true variety of working environments at all scales – from council-funded hubs to multi-million pound skyscrapers – and where related industries are choosing to cluster in established and emerging hubs.
