New London Architecture Conference

London’s Towns: Shaping the polycentric city, conferences and talks programme

New London Architecture (NLA) will host a timely exhibition and series of talks and conferences this autumn, titled London’s Towns: Shaping the polycentric city. The programme will highlight one of the major shifts from the policies of Ken Livingstone as Boris Johnson plans to focus on outer London – the suburbs – the places where most Londoners live and work.

The eight-week exhibition at NLA will examine areas of outer London as both destinations and neighbourhoods and the part they have played in the development of the capital. An overview of the architecture, planning and development will encourage a reappraisal of the suburban ‘ring’ – past, present and future – and address the issues particular to their ongoing success.

Examining Boris Johnson’s election promise and looking at the conundrums facing the newly established Outer London Commission, the exhibition and related conference and talks programme will inform, inspire and encourage debate about the role of London’s towns.
