This seems to me a project we could well do without. None of the photomontages in this presentation really show what a one kilometre long obstruction to the views of the river from the existing embankment walks will impact on the urban landscape. If London is already committed to paying for it , then I suggest it be towed downstream and moored a short distance upstream of the Thames Barrier, where it would certainly liven up the down-at-heel banks of the river down there, and be closer to the Olympic city.

The visitation looks marvellous and maybe the interest in this will be useful in drawing attention to the potential destruction by Thames Water's super sewer, of the existing Thames Path and the King Edwards Memorial Park among others. I believe there is still time to stop that project from blighting the final effect of this one too.

Gensler releases renewed renderings of floating civic platform on The Thames 

Global design studio Gensler has just released these illustrative images of its concept for the kilometre-long floating River Walk on the north bank of the River Thames in England’s capital. Working with financiers Venus Group of Singapore and construction/consultancy firm Mace, Gensler has been finalising its design over the past six months and submitted a planning application in August 2011.

In May Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London stated that: “The sheer beauty and design brilliance of this structure will provide yet another amazing and unique attraction for the capital.” If planning is approved the 12m wide platform will be completed in time for next summer’s London 2012 Olympic Games and will remain post-event as a lasting legacy for the city.

Loosely comparable to the highly successful Highline in New York, Gensler’s London River Walk will form a continuous walkway running parallel to the existing mismatched streets along the river frontage and include a number of event spaces and a swimming pool.
