What will central London look like in 100 years?

Chatham House's 3D digital model allows the public to explore a future of positive change.

Futurescape London, a new free 3D digital model, allows the public to explore the future of city centres, using Piccadilly Circus as its location.  Launched yesterday by Piccadilly-based think tank, Chatham House to mark its 100 year anniversary, the Futurescape London experience is intended to stimulate debate about the future of our cities over the next century.

Against the backdrop of city centres emptied out by the COVID 19 pandemic and the growing urgency for urban hubs to support more sustainable lifestyles, Futurescape London aims to encourage conversations about the changes people want to see in their towns and cities.

Developed with agency Platform Group and the School of International Futures, London Futurescape was created following consultation with a group of scientists, architects, designers, sustainability experts and trend analysts interested in building more positive urban futures. Chatham House’s network of experts developed Futurescape to imagine how London’s West End could be the site for the group’s ideas, seeding the site with information points providing context for the model’s speculations.
