Bethany Gale and Sarah Tolley are victorious in Royal Docks design competition

The winning design in a competition to reimagine the world’s largest enclosed docks was announced yesterday at the annual Ecobuild event in London. Silvertown Docks by Bethany Gale and Sarah Tolley suggests transforming London’s Royal Docks into a new type of marina through the creation of a vibrant series of spaces that encourage sport, leisure and wildlife preservation. The team has received £2,000 in prize money for their efforts.

Speaking about the project, the judges said: “This has a sense of place and a notion of history. It has a seeming effortlessness that comes together into something that is believable. It creates a green oasis in the docks and has elements that will appeal to everybody, humanising the dock and softening its hard edges, making the most of existing assets.”
