New London Architecture today kicks off two exhibitions that aim to tackle the issue of climate change in the capital.
Sustainable London and Zero Carbon: Designs for Gallions Park discuss how the design, construction and use of buildings can reduce the impact on the environment. The exhibition graphics and catalogue for Sustainable London are desgined by Hyperkit.
A programme of breakfast talks will also examine projects that are meeting zero carbon targets, how existing buildings can be improved and what impact changing regulations for energy reduction will have on the way London’s buildings look.
Gallions Park is located at the eastern end of Royal Albert Dock and is the first zero carbon development promoted by the London Development Agency. The related exhibition will showcase design proposals from a recent competition to select a developer to build the 200 new homes. A key project for the regeneration of London’s dockland, it hopes to show that zero carbon developments are commercially and financially viable.
Sustainable London runs until 28 April and Zero Carbon: Designs for Gallions Park until 14 April. Both are in The Building Centre in central London.
