Is This The Best New Architecture In London?

A bridge crossing the Regent's Canal, a new cinema in Crouch End and a candy-striped subway are among architectural projects shortlisted as among London's best.

New London Architecture (NLA)'s annual New London Awards seek out the capital's most innovative and inspiring schemes — and this year's shortlist is not so short, with 136 projects spanning 15 categories.

Here's a selection of some of our own favourites:

Coal Drops Yard? More like Beef Flaps Yard. A welcome relief from the recent phallic constructions, I guess.

Guided Walks in London

Great to see the diversity of innovative design and architecture in London. Thank you for including the Baker Street Wonderpass. I am delighted that it has been short listed for an award as I involved in researching the dates for its time line.
