Ideas for the future look and usage of the River Thames in London will be put forward by a group of picked design teams over the coming months
The UK’s Architecture Foundation, together with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and the Royal Academy of Arts, chose the architects and designers for a project called “London As It Could Be Now: New Visions for the Thames.”
They are: Carl Turner Architects with The Edible Bus Stop, David Kohn Architects, Neil Cummings and 51% Studios, Studio Octopi with Stockley and Jonathan Cook Landscape and The Eastern Reach.
“It is more important than ever to consider new ways to harness this artery that runs through the capital to enhance the ways we will live in the future,” said a project spokesperson.
“’London As It Could Be Now’ empowered design teams to specify their own sites and approaches to address how the Thames is used and how it might improve to reflect changing social, economic, cultural and environmental conditions and concerns.”
A public presentation of the plans will take place in September.
