New Ideas for Housing


NLA's major autumn 2015 exhibition, uncovers 100 new innovative ideas to solve the housing crisis. The result of a major NLA International Ideas Competition organised in collaboration with the Mayor of London, the competition attracted over 200 entries from 16 countries around the world, with submissions from world-renowned architects, developers, consultants, local boroughs and everyday city residents.

The exhibition presents a selection of both practical and more radical ideas: from increasing self-building and co-housing, to building over infrastructure assets, infilling council estates, and densifying the suburbs.

It also displays a Showcase of some of the most exemplary new, or proposed, housing developments in London, The exhibition forms part of major Insight Study, backed up by independent research, examining what needs to happen in the capital to improve the speed, scale and quality of its housing supply. It is supported by a series of free talks, conferences and tours - details to be announced shortly.
