Emerging Finnish practices selected for floating platform scheme on two-acre parkland in London

A shortlist of three young practices has been announced by The Architectural Foundation, The Finnish Institute in London and the London Wildlife Trust to conceptualise a floating platform for the Camley Street Natural Park in London’s King’s Cross.

Erkko Aarti & Arto Ollila, Esa Ruskeepaa Architects, and Hekki Muntola & Toni Osterlund have been selected from a longlist of eight teams to submit designs for the floating platform which will enable the London Wildlife Trust to expand their educational programmes and extend their studies into local wildlife. A winner will be announced in January 2013 and the structure built in the same year.

Director of The Architecture Foundation, Sarah Ichioka commented: “We are delighted to be working on this Viewpoint project with the Finnish Institute and the London Wildlife Trust, creating a permanent contribution to the landscape of Camley Street Natural Park. The tree shortlisted practices represent an exciting and emerging generation of Finnish architects, who we believe will bring a sensitive and high quality approach to this design commission.”
