Bringing people and ideas together to shape a better city

NLA is an independent forum for debate about the future shape of the city and a permanent information resource about what's happening in architecture, planning, development and construction across the capital.

A year-round programme of events, publications and exhibitions bring together politicians, professionals and the public to share knowledge, analyse policy, debate change and identify opportunities.

Our galleries at the Building Centre in central London are open free of charge six days a week.
