Erect wins Vauxhall 'missing link' contest

  • Comment

Erect Architecture has won the RIBA-backed competition to redesign the public realm around Vauxhall in south London

Working with J&L Gibbons, the practice saw off more than 100 teams, including finalists Cedric Chausse and Charlotte Portier from London and Moscow-based Blank Architects,to scoop first prize in the Missing Link contest.

Described as ‘quirky’ but ‘very implementable’, the victorious concept entwines cycelways and footpaths around parks, the notorious gyratory system and under the railway arches.

According to the judges the scheme ‘demonstrated understanding of the site, history and context, offered exceptional design flair and innovation, and exhibited excellent understanding of green infrastructure.’

The practice has landed a five year programme of work and will collaborate with the Vauxhall One team to realise their plans for the area in Nine Elms.
