Design for London's urban design manager Mark Brearley will deliver the keynote address at the opening of LEAF London 2008 on Wednesday.

The event at London's Royal Horticultural Halls brings together leading architects from around the world, and is organised by designbuild-network's sister publication, LEAF.

Brearley will talk on London's strategic areas of architectural change from public space to the Thames Gateway area of east London.

The three-day event will also look at carbon neutral buildings and eco-design with RIBA President Sunand Prasad and leading architect Ken Shuttleworth, a founding partner of Make Architects.

Airport construction and design will also be covered, with a site visit arranged for Heathrow’s Terminal 5, which will open to the public in April this year.
