Landscape architecture steals the show at Future Vision 08 awards

For the second year running, landscape architecture has stolen the show, with a student from Kingston University securing the top prize at Future Vision 08 – the national awards scheme for young people with bright ideas for improving places.

Regine Elmenthaler came up with an idea to inject life into the Royal Docks in East London. Her vision for the future – Revive the Docks – brings the community together by creating a series of floating docks that extend the existing landscape to make room for markets, gardens, homes, green space and even a beach.
