New London Architecture to make second attempt at opening

The opening of the New London Architecture exhibition, which was postponed three weeks ago because of the first wave of terrorist attacks, will take place this evening.

NLA, a permanent exhibition space at the Building Centre on Store Street in the West End, features a giant architectural model designed to highlight the massive number of large projects proposed for the capital.

Put together by Wordsearch chairman and architectural activist Peter Murray together with Nick McKeogh, a director at model-maker Pipers, the new space - which will be free to view - aims to promote modern architecture throughout London.

Speaking before the first planned opening, Murray said that it 'is essential that London has a place where everyone - professionals and public alike - can find out what is happening to their city.

'People will find it really important to see the scale of the projects on the drawing board at the moment and how the City looks in comparison, to say, the proposed Olympic sites.

'This will also provide a networking base for all London-orientated practices. It will become a central part of the London architectural scene - you won't be able to avoid it,' he added.
