DESIGNS ON KING'S CROSS

Tom Emerson, Stephanie Macdonald, Rentaro Nishimura

Walking around the site enabled us to bring back evidence of the immense infrastructure of railways and canal that shape the King's Cross psyche - having disconnected it from London for the last 150 years - and the refreshing wilderness that has grown up in Camley Street nature reserve. We focused on retaining this dialogue of infrastructure and the ecology of wilderness to propose a strategy unique to King's Cross. [Proposed] Cubitt Park is envisaged as an inhabited viaduct wilderness park rising through the site and attracting a diverse ecosystem to the city, continuing into the residential site as the semi-private open space required to support a new residential community.

Our proposal attempts to remind us that a place already exists which has a great deal of beauty and power that could enrich the tidy avenues of the masterplan.
