London's Growing... Up!You only have to look at buildings like The Shard and The Walkie Talkie to know that London is growing ever taller, and from April the New London Architecture (NLA) - London's Centre for the Built Environment explores this new skyline through London's Growing... Up! On the cusp of an explosion in the number of tall buildings - London will have 200 additional new buildings over 20 storeys high in the next decade - the exhibition shows the results of an NLA study into tall buildings in the capital. Through images, video, models, CGI and visitor interaction, the exhibition presents a past, present and future view of London's skyline, looking at the major changes impacting the capital's skyline, analysing why this growth is taking place and looking at the response of the planning system.

 

About The Building Centre

Open to the public as well as construction professionals, The Building Centre houses a permanent exhibition of a 1:1500 scale model of Central London. Current major building projects are plotted onto an accompanying display. Part of the New London Architecture project, the model gives visitors a dynamic overview of how the city is laid out and how it is evolving architecturally. More about The Building Centre
