Mount Pleasant by Derek Mok

The proposal acts as a playful reminder to the site’s rich history; the urban landscape translates these histories into an experiential space through its functionality and materiality.  Visitors to the park can play, shop, bathe and grow their own vegetables.

Not just a sculpture inspired by the Möbius’ strip; a live object that transforms a forgotten space into a landmark place, allowing access from a conflictive point in the Queen’s Walk to one of the beaches along the Thames.

The building is in essence a series of undulating bridges, linking the new Stratford city development, the Olympic pedestrian spine, and the Olympic Aquatics centre. These links meet in the middle to become part of a fluid building that houses an art gallery.

O-Zone at Wandsworth Roundabout by Ian Wale and Suzanne Jewell

Celebrating the perpetual motion of natural cycles, the O-Zone is a water treating, food producing, energy generating outdoor gym where people can live, work and play. Creating locally distinctive community hubs, the O-Zone concept can be applied to create a national network.

This proposal is to create a tranquil haven away from the hurly burly of the shopping street. At the heart of Peckham Calabash is the relationship between shopping and culture.
