London River Park

London, United Kingdom
January 1st 2012

Gensler took a pioneering approach with its proposal for a new river park, designed to use a system of pontoons moored along the underutilized north bank of the River Thames between Blackfriars Bridge and Tower of London. Connecting some of the world’s most visited tourist attractions, the floating park endeavors to maintain the dramatic pace of regeneration stimulated by the Tate Modern and the Millennium Bridge. Envisioned to provide publicly accessible spaces for passive recreation while reflecting the intense, paved nature of the city, the proposal includes a provision for seven pavilions that would incorporate various uses, including public exhibitions, a swimming pool and a multipurpose hall.
