RRP wins Bankside plan

  • Comment

The Tate has appointed the Richard Rogers Partnership to masterplan 'a coherent vision' for the regeneration of the area surrounding Tate Modern on London's Bankside. Tate director Sir Nicholas Serota told the AJ that RRP's 'sensitive' approach beat off competition from two other unnamed invited practices.He hoped RRP would implement some of Lord Rogers' Urban Task Force proposals with small scale improvements to the local streetscape, access and public transport systems, alongside a rejuvenation of the site as an area for artists, media companies and educational institutions.RRP's Mike Davies has been leading the project, which will involve work with the community and local businesses on the 'Bankside Triangle' area, bounded by the river, Blackfriars Road, Borough Market and Elephant & Castle - which like nearby London Bridge City is being redeveloped by Foster and Partners. The work will feed into the local Unitary Development Plan. 'We were anxious that Bankside's future growth is for the benefit of visitors, local residents, creative individuals and businesses, ' Sir Nicholas added. The masterplan will be ready by Christmas and implementation is planned over the next five-10 years.
