A proposal to transform space around the A40 viaduct into useful piece of city that takes advantage of the glamorous and beautiful existing spaces while imbuing them with a rich set of new functions.
Giant picture frames located around the viaduct will raise awareness of the historic structure and provide interpretation. By improving access through the arches the viaduct will become an integrated feature.
This proposal initiates an urban evolution that will transform the degraded corridor stretching from the Victoria Station forecourt to the River Thames into an icon of 21st century city design.
