Tour of the Thames Barrier Park

Take a tour of one of London's largest parks, guided by Architect Andrew Taylor. The innovative use of landscape architecture, materials and planting has transformed a once derelict brownfield site into a rich and inviting public space. The 9ha area, covering the north bank of the River, was one of the most important landscape and urban design challenges of recent years. The space marries together the natural form of the park with the surrounding industrial docklands, creating a harmonious and enticing public recreation area. Andrew will talk through Patel Taylors design decisions which lead to the park becoming a special place of cultural significance with its own clear identity.
