Following our post yesterday that Bethany and Sarah, both gradates from the MA Landscape Architecture programme at Greenwich, were shortlisted for the Landscape Institute’s Royal Docks Competition, they have been announced as overall winners.
They saw off strong international competition from professional practices and students. Studio Engleback, Baharash Architects and students Christos Diplas and James Hartwell were the four runners-up.
The judges said: ‘This has a sense of place and a notion of history. It has a seeming effortlessness that comes together into something that is believable. It creates a green oasis in the docks and has elements that will appeal to everybody, humanising the dock and softening its hard edges, making the most of existing assets.’
