These are the five shortlisted designs for a new £20 million pedestrian-friendly walkway in Vauxhall, south London
The schemes aim to tackle pedestrian safety and connect transport infrastructure in the key growth area that has been plagued by traffic accidents.
The walkways are part of a package of community benefits linked to developer CLS Holdings’ nearby 40-storey twin skyscraper development, which has been masterplanned by Allies and Morrison.
If built, the victorious design could spell the end of Arup Associates’ ‘ski-jump’ bus station canopy which opened in 2005 (AJ 10.02.11). Only Heneghan Peng Architects’ scheme retains the existing roof structure.
Which practice has the best design?
