Shortlist of 20 'water sensitive' regeneration ideas for London's Royal Docks exhibited at Ecobuild

20 shortlisted entries have been selected in a competition to reimagine London's Royal Docks. The competition, hosted by the Landscape Institute and sustainable design event Ecobuild, challenged entrants to transform the area into a multifunctional liveable space using ‘water sensitive’ ideas. The shortlisted submissions were selected from 65 proposals designed by qualified architects and students.

Speaking about the shortlist Sue Illman, President of the Landscape Institute said: “It’s time we started to see water as a valuable resource - rather than something to be hidden away underground. Recent events in Somerset and elsewhere in the country have demonstrated that the UK desperately needs a fully integrated approach to flooding, water supply and land use management. The designs on the shortlist show what is possible if we adopt a mixed green, grey and blue infrastructure approach.”

The shortlisted submissions will be exhibited during Ecobuild (4-6 March at the Excel Centre, London) with a winner selected on Wednesday 5 March.
