This free NLA PechaKucha heard from innovative organisations working in London who will present fresh thinking around the delivery of homes for Londoners in an exciting evening of quick-fire presentations

This event came as part of the New Ideas for Housing programme of events supporting the NLA exhibition which opened in October 2015. 
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 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.
