Don't Move, Improve!In this annual competition we get a peek inside London's best architecturally designed home extensions. Run by New London Architecture, Don't Move, Improve!, now its ninth year, is one of world's most popular design awards programmes, according to design bible Dezeen. A chance for emerging architectural practices to get the recognition they deserve. This year's winning project is 'The Chapel' in Southwark, a conversion of a religious building into a family home designed by architects Craftworks. Alongside the winners, over 130 selected projects are on show at this free exhibition running in the NLA Galleries at The Building Centre.

 

About The Building Centre

Open to the public as well as construction professionals, The Building Centre houses a permanent exhibition of a 1:1500 scale model of Central London. Current major building projects are plotted onto an accompanying display. Part of the New London Architecture project, the model gives visitors a dynamic overview of how the city is laid out and how it is evolving architecturally. More about The Building Centre
