The search is on to uncover some fresh thinking on London's housing crisis with a major international competition open to anyone who has a bright idea for how to unlock London’s housing supply and deliver more homes.

Organised by New London Architecture and supported by the Mayor's office, entrants are being asked to suggest ways they would improve the speed, scale and quality of London’s housing supply.

"We are looking for a range of innovative ideas, from solutions for planning policy, land and funding to construction, procurement and design," says the organisation. "Ideas can be small-scale or large in their ambition, but when brought together will make a significant contribution to the delivery of quality housing in the capital."

The best ideas will form an exhibition in October and the finalists will make up formal industry recommendations to be presented to key government representatives and mayoral candidates.

To submit your ideas and for more information, see the NLA website. The deadline is 7 August.
