Welcome to the first edition of my monthly round up of interesting articles, blog posts and stories from around the web. I’ll be focussing mostly on London-related stories, with interesting bits from further afield if it’s relevant!

If you have any suggestions for next month’s post, please let me know.

  1. Why is London attracting business talent? (London Loves Business)
    The sort of sensational statement that we’d expect from the Mayor NOT Mr. Gove!
  2. New Tube map for walkers! (AJ Creatives / WalkLondon)
    Designed for use during tube strikes, this very handy map proved useful on a recent day out in London.
  3. 3D Model showing proposed changes to London’s skyline (The Londonist)
    How might London’s skyline change and should it? Lots of information plus an accessible internet 3D-model of London at this exhibition called ‘London’s Growing Up” which runs until 12 June and, entry is free.
  4. A village feel for Battersea Power station? (London Evening Standard)
    Trying to create a village feel is a nice idea but with high London property prices, this could only be wishful thinking.
  5. Lego’s creative workspace (Office Design Gallery)
    Who says it’s all work no play? Check out Lego Denmark’s innovative and funky workspace.
