NY-LON Simultaneous Seminars #4: Historic Preservation and City Renewal

Friday 25 October 2013

13:30 - 15:30 (Lunch from 13:30)

KPF, 7a Langley Street, London

This special seminar is the fourth in an NLA series supported by KPF, and in association with the Forum for Urban Design, and takes place simultaneously in New York and London to share knowledge and explore the key issues facing the built environment in both cities.

The continual renewal of London and New York’s skyline, architecture, and city planning have contributed to their status as two of the most dynamic cities in the world, able to quickly adapt to changing economic, environmental and social circumstances. 

But with recent debates around the redevelopment of historic assets, including Smithfield Market and the Southbank Centre in London and the East Midtown rezoning in New York, how can both cities achieve the right balance between historic preservation and city renewal?
