New London Architecture (NLA), the permanent exhibition space which opens to the public on 7 July 2005 at The Building Centre, has announced its autumn exhibition programme.
Highlighting all that is new in architecture, planning and development in the capital, this major new visitor destination will host a constant series of free exhibitions throughout the year, exploring themes topical to London and its built environment. The programme will sit alongside NLA’s permanent showcase of current and planned major development proposed for the capital (over £100billion over the next two decades), with a giant model of central London surrounded by a display of new architecture being built in all of the 33 boroughs.
Located just off Tottenham Court Road on Store Street in WC1, NLA will be a place where Londoners and the city’s visitors can go to discover the dynamic changes transforming the capital and ensuring its position as one of the most exciting cities in the world.
The Changing Face of London
7 July – 10 September 2005
NLA’s opening exhibition The Changing Face of London will for the first time bring together the megaprojects set to transform the metropolis. Be it the creation of Stratford City and Heathrow Terminal 5, or the redevelopment of Kings Cross, White City, Elephant and Castle and Cricklewood, London is undergoing a scale of change not seen for three quarters of a century, which will have an impact on us all. This exhibition will give both the public and professionals the opportunity to compare and contrast these major developments and take part in the debate about future London.
New London Healthcare
10 October – 12 November 2005
The healthcare sector is currently undergoing the largest capital building programme in its history. The New London Healthcare exhibition will look at the historical, contemporary and future healthcare estate in London, which will be transformed over the next 10 years. Themes such as healing environments, new models of care and new technology will be explored in their architectural context. A lecture and seminar programme will run alongside the exhibition to expand upon some of the main themes and will feature professionals from both health care and architectural fields. Curated by The Building Centre Trust.
