A Royal Pavilion, skatepark and microbrwerey: all the Forgotten Spaces London 2013 entries for Newham (Part 2)

ScaletheBloc by Fiona McQuaid, Landlayers Design Ltd


In a place that is all about the act of travel from A to B, ScaletheBloc is an urban climbing centre and natural play area where routes are a game.


Silver Lining by Scheherezade Soodeen

Silver Lining

The proposal seeks to convert shipping containers into stylish, light-filled pavilions, offering this London community affordable office, art and design studio and retail spaces. Transformation will reveal opportunities for both communal and entrepreneurial activity in the area and beyond.


Silver Park by Magdalena Prus

Silver Park

‘Silver Park’ is a proposal for a new active outdoor space, a Free Form Skate Park, situated in the heart of the London Borough of Newham. This vision will transform a now, derelict wasteland, into a hub of activity.


Silvertown Brewery by Chris Allen, Marcus Andren and Michael Gyi

Silvertown Brewery

The project creates a destination out of Silvertown rather than being a place of transit, only ever experienced passing through it. A microbrewery and bowling venue are introduced, extending London’s rapid resurgence into brewing and the worlds beer scene.


Silvertown Skatepark by James Roach and Adam Mozes

Silvertown Skatepark

The undercroft of Silvertown Way flyover will play host to a variety of extreme sports events as well as a valuable community hub including a covered bar and cafe, workshop, cinema, and shops.


The Business Allotments by Matthew Clubbs Coldron, Christopher Bulmer and Christopher Bentley

The Business Allotments

A place to eat healthily, develop business, and generally increase the attraction of the area; our proposal comprises allotments, cafe, business “allotments”, market areas and event space. The elements are linked by a spatial continuum, which people circulate freely.


The Green Room by Chris Blandford Associates - Mark Rogers, Mike Wood and Phil Porter

the green room

The Green Room focuses on the simplest of ideas, the introduction of nature into the city. Importantly, it will be a catalyst for demonstrating how ‘grey’ infrastructure can be integrated with ‘green solutions for delivering ecosystems services.


The Link by Reynold Li

The Link

The Link is a mixed use venue that seeks to further enliven the charming Royal Docks and also to reconnect the older areas of Newham to the newly developed districts.


The Royal Pavilion by Gunton Works - Mike Taylor and Daniel Marmot

The Royal Pavilion

A disused platform in North Woolwich is reimagined as the plinth for a new pavilion, which takes the name of the Royal Pavilion pub formerly on the site. A riverside terrace creates a new destination, with flexible community space below.


The Silvertown Platform by AA+AR - Adam Atraktzi and Andrea Rodriguez

The Silvertown Platform

The Silvertown Platform attempts to revive the Victorian dock dynamics in Silvertown by turning a leftover void caused by the modernisation of society into the infrastructure for a dynamic social experiment in flexibility.


The Undergarden by Megan Ancliffe

The Undergarden

The Undergarden is a community space that inverts the traditional garden by existing in a hostile man-made environment where the plants grow at night. The space functions as a community garden while its sheltered environment provides a unique indoor park.


Urban Forest by Mena Kubba-Farrar

Urban Forest

The Urban Forest addresses a historical link between the East and West of London as well as looking towards the future and our impact on the immediate and global environment within a serene and calm urban setting.


Urban Generator by Martyna Dobosz of Townshend Landscape Architects and Konrad Boncza-Pioro of Capita Symonds

Urban Generator

Urban Generator beneath Silvertown flyover is a place for human expression where social and sustainable energy is being sourced and released through a variety of outdoor activities.


W-Ünderpass by Jack Whatley, Karl Huby and Sundas Rohilla


A new creative hub in the underpass by Victoria docks, utilising piezo electricity from the flyover and waste products from nearby waste management plants to create temporary event spaces and residential units, with the ability to easily evolve over time.
