Street Party: Capital ideas for London’s streets! 

Tuesday 2 February 2016

18:30-20:30 (Registration from 18:00)

NLA, The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

An evening of quick-fire presentations, powered by pechakucha, will invite a series speakers to put forward their ‘Capital Ideas’ for improving London’s streets and roads.

'Capital Ideas' are hypothetical but realistic proposals to make London a better place. How will these industry professionals use forward thinking to address such key issues as freight management, technology and cycling infrastructure? 

Pechakucha evenings were invented by the British architect Mark Dytham, and have turned into a massive celebration of design across the world. Each speaker is allowed 20 images, each on screen for 20 seconds – the format is quick and inventive!
