Khan: 'I'll scrap Garden Bridge if I become London Mayor'

Comment

Before we totally write off this narcissistic vanity project, we should perhaps pause to consider if there is anything of value which can be salvaged and which may inform future plans for London. In my view building bridges over the Thames is a practical and sensible proposition where necessary, however this particular location is problematic at best, and probably totally unnecessary. Moreover London is not short of green space but is critically short of housing - why then not have a competition for a habitable bridge in a part of London that desperately needs a connection, and would provide not only much needed housing, but also a prototype habitable bridge concept for the 21st Century which could be exported worldwide. I'm sure this would appeal to a new Mayor of London. Chris Roche Founder 11.04 Architects
