The London ‘Garden Bridge’ Concept

November 10, 2013 § Leave a comment

British designer Thomas Heatherwick, the man famous for redesigning London’s iconic double-decker buses, has devised a ‘garden bridge’ that would stretch 1,200 feet across the Thames from the Temple area to South Bank. The structure would be filled with trees, flowers, grass and branched by walkways, benches and viewpoints.

The concept is designed to provide a slow and peaceful oasis amid the chaos of Europe’s busiest city. The only predicament so far is that Boris Johnson is not prepared to invest any public money, meaning the Garden Bridge Trust must raise around £60 million to see this ambitious project realised. Heatherwick hopes to complete the bridge by the start of 2016.
