Five proposals for reconnecting Londoners with the River Thames have gone on display at London's Royal Academy of Arts (RA). The competition, organised by the Architecture Foundation, "launched an open call for multidisciplinary design teams to put forward new ideas and visions for self-selected sites along the Tidal Thames" earlier this year. The five selected teams were shortlisted earlier this year and recently discussed their designs at a public design workshop. The schemes are now being exhibited as part of the Richard Rogers RA: Inside Out exhibition. Read extracts of the proposals after the break... River Beds / Carl Turner Architects and The Edible Bus Stop "Our team will be investigating the South Bank of the Thames between Battersea Park and Vauxhall Bridge. We are looking for opportunities on the ground to up-scale the idea of guerrilla gardening and hopefully make a new green route between these two landmarks. The ‘green’ will be about growing food and we will see what connections can be made with local communities to support these new public spaces."
