Imagining the Future City: London 2062

London 2062 Cover Image (as published)

A book based on the London 2062 work, edited by Sarah Bell and James Paskins, was launched on 18 November 2013.

The London 2062 book features new work that addresses London’s future, including academic writing, opinion pieces and illustrations. The book also features the winning entries from the London 2062 competition, which invited contributions from UCL students, and an introduction from Sarah Bell, James Paskins (UCL), Joanna Wilson and Jennifer Johnson (Future of London).

The aim of this book, and the London 2062 programme, is to open discussion about the future of London. What is the future we want to see for London? Which priorities for a global city are in opposition? How can we meet carbon emission targets and deliver new infrastructure in the 21st Century?
