Are tall towers taking over London?

Over 230 towers rising over 20 stories tall are currently logged somewhere in London’s planning process. Who knew? This week NLA launched London’s Growing…Up! a major exhibition based on an Insight Study to explore London’s rapidly changing skyline, and the drivers behind it.

Architects, developers, policy makers, environmentalists and heritage guardians have been quick to offer wide-ranging opinions on what is proving to be a provocative topic. Should we be worried about the quality of such rapid development, the privatisation of London’s skyline and the provision of public realm at street level, or should we just be thankful that there may be a possible solution to London’s population growth and housing crisis? Make your opinion count at #NLAtallbuildings.
