New Ideas for HousingHousing is a hot topic in London. High rises and high rents are all too often the reality. But here are 100 ideas to solve the London housing crisis. New Ideas for Housing shows the top 100 ideas, the result of an international competition, displayed in a free exhibition at the NLA galleries in The Building Centre from 15th October. Ambitious proposals include creating a mega-city near the M25, better use of London's canal and river network - floating homes which could be complete in a mere six months - redeveloping the suburbs and repurposing rooftops. Rogers Stirk Harbour and Partners - the firm behind the Pompidou centre in Paris - shows how easy-to-build prefab buildings can make single apartment homes both well-designed and affordable.

 

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
