More Place, London Bridge

Here is a quick sketch I made of More Place, right beside the new Shard building in London Bridge. The street has a small river running down the centre of it. I really loved this idea, conceived by Townshend Landscape Architects, and when I noticed Tower Bridge at the end of the street I knew that the bridge had to be the inspiration for the stream, as well as being inspiration for most of the architecture, whereby it is meant to compliment and enhance its surroundings aswell as providing a functional space. I am currently planning an event to be held on this street. Although ambitious, I think it would be a fantastic way of encouraging new and raw talent to the engineering community. Thats all I can say for the moment, but watch this space¬! The finished drawing will reveal all! Reference photograph: More Place, London Bridge
