BDP Landscape has triumphed in a competitive interview to design the £500,000 Cathedral Square at London's Bankside, beating off competition from Elizabeth Banks, Eger Architects and EDAW. BDPwill design the square in partnership with the Bankside Residential forum. Cathedral Square is a 35m by 35m site between Southwark Cathedral and the Thames and will be the first phase of the project.
Bankside Residental Forum is hoping to raise more money for additional work next year. The design team is expecting to start on site in April 2001 for the gardens to be ready in the autumn.
