At the NLA
HTA Design LLP and Pollard Thomas Edwards hosted an evening reception at the NLA on Monday evening powered by PechaKucha to coincide with the NLA New Ideas for Housing London competition, exhibition and insight study.
Supurbia is the title of HTA’s winning entry to the competition. It’s an idea for a neighbourhood based framework allowing householders to create new high quality housing and more sustainable neighbourhoods by exploiting the asset value of their increasingly valuable suburban plots.
Semi-permissive is Pollard Thomas Edwards’ exhibited idea for similarly allowing householders the freedom to become micro-developers by relaxing permitted development rights in accessible areas so as to stimulate suburban intensification.
The was opened by Peter Murray and closed by David Lunts (Executive Director, Housing and Land, Greater London Authority) who explained why this thinking is a relevant contribution to the debate about housing supply in the capital.
