Public LondonInviting us to take a look at the public spaces of the city, Public London explores how London's everyday spaces have been transformed since the city won the bid to host the 2012 Olympics 10 years ago. From grand projects such as Trafalgar Square, Exhibition Road and the Olympic Park, to a wealth of smaller-scale interventions, including high streets, pop-ups and green spaces, the past, present and future of public realm in the capital is assessed. At the same time, temporary installation Never Mind the Bollards, a playful take on street furniture, will appear outside the NLA Galleries at The Building Centre.

 

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
