Cartwright Pickard

  • Comment

Cartwright Pickard, in association with the Peabody Trust and developer Urban Space Management, has put forward a novel way of solving London's housing crisis - a return to the inhabited bridges of the middle ages. The plan is for a 92-home,10-storey bridge over the River Lea in east London and, following Cartwright Pickard and Peabody Trust's award winning Murray Grove project in 1999, this would use prefabricated flats craned into place. If the idea is a success, the developer suggests that similar projects could be introduced across urban motorways and railway cuttings.
