Event to focus on London suburbs

Enforcing the importance of public space and place-making will be discussed at an exhibition by New London Architecture (NLA) this autumn.

The exhibition and series of talks and conferences will examine the suburbs of London as both destinations and neighbourhoods, and the part they have played in the development of the capital.

London's Towns: Shaping the Polycentric City kicks off on 25 September and aims to encourage debate about the potential of the capital's suburban town centres.

The first, Developing Communities, is to be held on 9 October and will be followed on 30 October by Placemaking: Creating a Destination, which features discussion on public realm strategies.

Speakers include Urbed director Nick Falk, Space Syntax associate director Dr Beatriz Campos and Town & Country Planning Association director Gideon Amos.

A third conference, Connecting Outer London, is to be held on 4 November before the exhibition closes on 15 November. Free breakfast briefings are being held during the exhibition, focusing on the projects and research transforming outer London's towns and suburbs.

The events are being held at The Building Centre.
