News

A proposal for a suspended cycle and pedestrian deck along the south bank of the Thames from Greenwich to Battersea, by Peter Fink and Igor Marko (pictured below), is one of five winners in the Architecture Foundation's car-free London ideas competition.

The pair have been awarded £5000 to develop the idea, as have Martin Waters and Markus Lemanski with East Architects for their idea to replace cars in central London from 1 August with zero-emission buses with cycle racks; Alistair Jeffs' proposal for Londonet, which allows goods to go the citizen rather than the other way round; Muf architecture/art's ideas towards 'seemless security pleasure and mobility into the city'; and Michael Palwyn and Kelly Hill's idea for emission-free zones, phased in over 30 years and including electric buses, fuel-cell taxis, cycle wind tunnels and high-speed rail links.

An exhibition of all the schemes will open in April.
