Their latest exhibition, Public London: 10 Years of Transforming Spaces, includes a top ten of public spaces the capital's residents can look forward to.
Included are the Walthamstow Wetlands project, which will demonstrate how a bit of good design can go a long way towards creating an urban nature reserve, and the Goodsyard in Bishopsgate, which will be redeveloped to include 5.45 acres of park and public space, designed by Spacehub to create "a rich multilayered landscape" conceived as a transition from city to wilderness.

London Wall Place will allow visitors to explore some of the city’s oldest landmarks from above in landscaped areas in the urban heart of the City, while huge traffic islands such as Elephant & Castle and Tottenham Court Road will be transformed into thriving centres of pedestrian activity, complete with landscaping.
Peter Murray, chairman of New London Architecture, said: ‘As London grows we are seeing the development of areas of increased density, so it is vital that we have high quality open space where people can relax, meet and exercise. The ten new spaces provide an example of the sorts of places that will enhance new and existing parts of the capital.’
Public London: 10 Years of Transforming Spaces is running until 11 July at The Building Centre, Store St, London, WC1E 7BT.
