“The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) and Westminster City Council (WCC), in partnership with the Canal and River Trust, have revealed the shortlisted teams and designers to create a new public realm intervention alongside the Grand Union Canal, in the Harrow Road area of Westminster.

 Architects, landscape architects, designers and artists were invited to create a design concept for an experimental ‘cross-section’ installation to connect locals, visitors and passers-by with the canal. The competition aims to demonstrate how architectural and creative talent can revitalise forgotten spaces – such as this unloved stretch of towpath beneath the Westway – and how such initiatives can create welcoming and useful spaces for local communities. Subject to necessary consents, the installation will be in place in time for the London Festival of Architecture in June 2019.”
