The Architecture Foundation has called upon designers to take part in a design competition for a new play space for Three Mills Green in the east London borough of Newham
The competition is being organised by The Architecture Foundation on behalf of a collaborative partnership including the Olympic Park Legacy Company, The Legacy List charity and the Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, who own the land.
Three Mills Green is situated immediately south of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park close to Bromley-by-Bow, Stratford high street and West Ham.
It is part of Lee Valley Regional Park, and forms one of six proposed parks along the Fatwalk, a planned walking and cycling route from the Olympic Park to the Thames.
Sarah Weir, chief executive of The Legacy List, a newly established charity connecting culture and communities in and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, said: ‘The Legacy List is excited that its first project will be to deliver a high quality and inspirational playground for Three Mills Green.
‘It is exactly these connections between culture and community that will make the difference in and around the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and truly make a space into a place that complements and reflects the desires of the existing community.’
The deadline for receipt of expressions of interest and associated prequalification documentation is 15 August at 5pm.
