Young landscape and urban architect practices are invited to pitch for a contract to regenerate a 3km walkway that runs from London’s Victoria Park to West Ham.
Named Greenway, the path is currently in a neglected and underused state but, once regenerated, will form a key walking and cycling route in the lower Lee Valley before, during and after the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
ODA head of design Jerome Frost said: “This is a great opportunity for an up-and-coming design practice to apply its creativity to revitalising a vital link in the regeneration of the neglected public spaces in and around the Olympic Park area. The Greenway redesign is an important part of improving access for people in east London to attractive public spaces and promoting healthy activities such as walking and cycling.”
Interested practices should contact the ODA before 26 February.
