Landscape architect Luke Greysmith and John Ryan, CEO of Oxford House, recognised the untapped potential of the space – a south-facing aspect and shaded by trees but only serving as a car park. Despite the surrounding urban spaces being a hive of activity, the dead-end was only used for anti-social behaviour and fly-tipping. It seemed obvious that reconfiguring the street as a pocket park would benefit the local community in many ways – a social space with outdoor café, a connected space with new pedestrian / bike route, a bio-diverse space with new planting and a functional space featuring sustainable urban drainage (SuDS) as the backbone of the scheme.

DESIGN COMPETITION | New Bridge for Bath

BathQuays-Design-Competition
Bath & North East Somerset Council is seeking to appoint an outstanding team to deliver the design for what will be the first new crossing of the River Avon in Bath City Centre for over 100 years.

Bath Quays Bridge will provide a new link for pedestrians and cyclists between the North and South of the river Avon, at the southern periphery of Bath’s historic city. Given the importance of the bridge in contributing to the wider infrastructure of Bath, and the significance of its location in a UNESCO world heritage site, the Council has chosen a design competition as the means to select a concept design for the bridge and welcomes innovative, high quality designs coming forward through multi-disciplinary collaborations.

Expressions of interest are being sought on an open and international basis and are required by the submission deadline of 12 March 2015. To find out more about the £2.5m project and access the Pre-qualification Brief and Questionnaire

VIDEO | Jeanne Gang, `Expeditions in the Contemporary City`


Recently, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects gave a lecture at Harvard GSD in which she looks at cities and natural systems. An interesting lecture that shows how architecture, landscape and nature and becoming more intertwined within cities.

“Today’s cities must cope with lapsed industrial spaces and inherited infrastructure. Through the lens of some of her firm’s most recent and noteworthy projects, Jeanne Gang of Studio Gang Architects (Chicago) will consider how architectural practice might be refocused to help reimagine these territories and initiate transformation, and profess her longstanding interest in the new ways that cultural and science-based aspects of natural systems can be of use in defining the city.” – Harvard GSD
