The city of London is working on Europe’s largest regeneration project: the Thames Gateway. One part of this project is Ferry Lane, a run down industrial area on the edge of the swamp. Our design calls for the gradual redevelopment of the area with an injection of new businesses. The basis for this development is the upgrade of the existing blue network of small rivers and creeks. By reconnecting these waterways with the Thames, a more natural, harmonious profile (for both man and animal) returns to the area. These new conditions form the basis and inspiration for further development.
