A Smarter City

The City Centre, in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Brookfield, is undertaking a programme of activity including a three-part ideas competition, exhibition and a related series of events including panel discussions and hackathons entitled 'A Smarter City'.

The City will embrace new technologies, focussing on smart- enablement, resilience and collaborative innovation, to create a city that is competitive, open, interconnected and intelligent. It will feature excellent connectivity using the latest communications technology and transport links, with significant capacity for growth due to its high quality, flexible buildings and infrastructure, with a distinctive character derived from its diverse mix of buildings, uses, streets, spaces and its outstanding heritage and culture

Ideas for the City of London
Part 1

Smart Green Spaces

The first part of the competition launches on 20 February and focusses on ‘Smart Green Spaces’ in which we search for new ideas on connectivity, biodiversity, health & wellbeing and sustainability.

The next two parts of the competition will be announced in April and June.

28 April — 16 December


The City Centre gallery will host an exhibition of shortlisted entries to the competition in three separate parts.

The exhibition will open with 'Smart Green Spaces' from 28 April - 1 July 2017. The next two parts of the exhibition will open to the public in July and September 2017.

To accompany the shortlisted entries the exhibition will also focus on City of London data and an overview of global smart city projects displayed alongside the City of London’s unique architectural model that highlights the city’s built environment, both its heritage and future.

Data from the exhibition will be accessible on this site from 27 April 2017.
