Five Teams Selected to Envision Future Development for London Thames

The Architecture Foundation, in collaboration with Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners and the Royal Academy of Arts, has shortlisted five multidisciplinary, architect-led teams to envision future development along the Tidal Thames in London. The competition, dubbed London As It Could Be Now: New Visions for the Thames, will challenged the teams to put forward new ideas for self-selected sites along the river that are relevant to changing social, economic, cultural and environmental conditions and concerns.

The shortlisted teams 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 design collective The Easter Reach.

Each team will present their ideas in a September workshop in front of the following panel experts:

  • Patricia Brown, Director, Central; Deputy Chair of the Mayor’s Design Advisory Panel (Chair)
  • Eric Parry, Principal, Eric Parry Architects
  • Graham Stirk, Senior Partner, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners
  • Susannah Wilks, Director, Cross River Partnership
  • Georgina Young, Senior of Contemporary, Museum of London

The ideas presented will subsequently be exhibited as part of the 'Future of London' section of the Richard Rogers: Inside Out exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts as of September 2013.
