In a special ‘Two Minute Talks’ event on Monday evening NLA invited a series of eleven leading architects and practitioners, including Peter Bishop from the LDA, Alan Baxter from Alan Baxter & Associates and our very own Peter Murray, to speak on the topic of 'What Should London Be Made Of' for just 120 seconds each.

NLA members and invited guests were treated to a series of speedy and concise presentations which covered a range of topics from discussions of materials – London stock brick, stucco, glass and steel – and London’s infinite variety, to the spaces and people which shape the city.

The event was planned in response to the Mayor’s call for a new London vernacular and will form part of the NLA's response to the consultation on Boris's proposed changes to the London Plan.

Thanks go to all our speakers for an informative and very entertaining evening: Cany Ash - Ash Sakula Architects, Alan Baxter - Alan Baxter & Associates, Peter Bishop - LDA, Christophe Egret - Studio Egret West, Sarah Featherstone - Featherstone Associates, Nigel Lea - RMJM, Rowan Moore - Evening Standard, Peter Murray - NLA, Andrew Pryke - Capita Architecture, Dan Ringelstein - SOM and Barbara Weiss - Barbara Weiss Architects.
