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.
