BIG + dRMM led team longlisted for Thamesmead Waterfront competiton
An international team co-led by BIG and dRMM is one of ten teams that have been longlisted for the Thamesmead Waterfront competition, organised by Peabody and Lend Lease, and run by Colander.
Thamesmead Waterfront is a 100-hectare development site on the southern bank of the River Thames within the Royal Borough of Greenwich. It is one of the few remaining undeveloped waterfront sites in London and the South East that offers the scale and capacity to accommodate significant, sustainable, long-term economic growth and housing, particularly in a post COVID-19 world. With appropriate, timely support and investment, Thamesmead Waterfront offers London and the South East a fresh opportunity to deliver on its current and future needs with a new, connected, sustainable and liveable quarter.
BIG + dRMM are united in their fresh and free-thinking approach to architecture, sustainability and community, that challenges conventional boundaries and are excited at the opportunity work with the Thamesmead community to create a wonderful waterfront setting for current and future residents of Thamesmead with a genuine synergy between people and nature.
The full team includes: BIG – Bjarke Ingels Group and dRMM with Buro Happold, Gehl; LDA Design; Nigel Dunnett Studio; Gardiner & Theobald; Groundwork; Architecture Doing Place; Bell Phillips Architects; Erect Architecture; YOU & ME; Quality of Life Foundation, and Plan A Consultants.
