Dutch success in London – OKRA wins Croydon Competition


OKRA landscape architects have won the prestigious “International Urban Design Competition for Wellesley Road and Park Lane in Croydon” in London. Lead consultant OKRA participates in this project with Urhahn Urban Design, Peter Brett Associates, Karakusevic Carson Architects and Soundings. The ambition for Croydon is to transform the area, which counts 350.000 inhabitants, into London’s “third city”, complementary to Westminster and the City of London. The transformation of Wellesley Road and Park Lane, the central axis in Croydon, is one of the key projects in Croydon. The assignment is to create a vibrant centre of the monstrous main infrastructure that nowadays divides the centre in two parts.
