Finalists unveil design plans

October 13, 2015

The Thames River connects Londoners to their past, present and future. London Community Foundation, the City of London and Upper Thames River Conservation Authority have challenged groups from across the world to develop visionary designs that will help our community re-imagine its relationship with the river.

On Thursday, October 22nd, we invite you to join us as the five finalists present their visions for the Thames.

Team 1: The Ribbon of the Thames (Civitas;Stantec)

Team 2: Open the Bank (PWL Partnership)

Team 3: g-Radiant City (Janet Rosenberg & Studio)

Team 4: Forest City. River City. London (Dillon Consulting Limited; Stoss Landscape Urbanism)

Team 5: Continuum (Brook McIlroy; Patkau Architects)

Months in the making, we are thrilled to finally see the culmination of this project. Recruiting five top flight designers from across North America, we have no doubt the results of the project will be astounding. A riverfront development that understands and fosters Londoners’ love and care for their natural heritage is what we have been striving towards. We hope the ideas presented will reflect the bold and dynamic planning that manifests the ambitions of a city redefining itself as a centre of innovation and growth. The Thames River is at the heart of our city’s identity and we believe by reconnecting with our river, The Thames will be a source of community pride and expression of who we are and where we came from.

When: Thursday, October 22nd, 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Where: Western Fair District Carousel Room

900 King Street London, Ontario
