We’re thrilled to be a part of the Field Operations Team that has been selected to design London’s Camden Highline following a two-stage international competition.
The Field Operations Team includes design lead James Corner Field Operations, vPPR Architects, Hew Locke, Street Space, Piet Oudolf, Speirs Major, Tony Gee, AKT II, RLB, Pentagram, Atelier Ten, and Authentic Futures, working together to design the Camden Highline as a world-renowned park that is distinctive to Camden.
We will now work with the local community to reimagine a three-quarter mile of disused railway viaduct as a new walking route, park and open space for community activity.
In the first stages we will consult with the local community and key stakeholders to create an inclusive design plan for the ambitious new walkway and advance it through the planning process. Camden Highline will be a positive example of London’s post-Covid recovery, connecting neighbourhoods, increasing local access to green space, and enticing national and international tourists back to the capital. It will build community pride and sense of place, providing much-needed greenery and opportunities for cultural programming.
The charity is hosting a virtual Q&A with winners James Corner Field Operations and vPPR Architects, Camden Highline Chair and Jury member Richard Terry, and CEO Simon Pitkeathley on Thursday 11th March at 5:30pm. This is an opportunity for audiences to learn more about the project and the team delivering it. Register Here.
