London: Design Capital

Tuesday 16 May 2017

Insight Study


What is the make up of London's built environment workforce? This film, by Rupert Murray, forms a key part of the London: Design Capital exhibition. Exploring the offices of some of London's leading firms, we hear from experts delivering projects from the capital all around the world.

London is home to the world’s foremost architects, engineers and urban planners. Its skills in architectural design, engineering, construction, placemaking and consultancy are exported around the globe, from redeveloping European cities to emerging Asian markets. London: Design Capital showcases the work currently being carried out by London-based consultancies in global markets, across 65 countries, from masterplans through to individual schemes. 
This exhibition is the outcome of a new NLA Insight Study. Roundtables, viewpoints and interviews, as well as a survey of the NLA membership of over 500 organisations, have been combined with a call out for projects to produce this piece of research. A two-month programme of events taking place for the duration of the exhibition will further explore key themes, forming a core part of the NLA International Dialogues programme
