Townshend Landscape Architects urban design for More London

More London is an office development on the south bank of the River Thames between London Bridge and Tower Bridge. The brief given to the landscape architects, in 1998, was to create a unique place with both an individual character which the flexibility to evolve as part of an ever-changing city. The Scoop is an outdoor arena in which events are programmed. The design brought together the riverside walk and two principal areas of public space. A flowing rill provides a water link between the Thames and two ‘water plazas’. The Thamesside plaza has dancing fountains and the Tooley Street Plaza has slabs to waist level with water triclking down their sides. Buildings glazed on both sides at ground level provide another water-like view.
