Our winning entry for ‘The Imminent Diorama’ in collaboration with National Trust & Bompas & Parr at the Horniman Museum and Gardens.
2017 marks 80 years since St Paul’s Heights was first introduced. Since then the Greater London Authority has protected 27 views in the capital, but only thirteen hold Protected Vista status. Nine of these are from north of the river, with just four from south of the river. The ‘Points of View’ project seeks to address the apparent disparity and explore the potential for new protected views from south London.
It’s 2098 – London has finally built itself out of the housing crisis; the centre has densified, outer boroughs have built up and key workers once again enjoy the city in which they live. London is a joyous city of sprawling leisure parks and integrated live-work spaces and now looks to the future. Planning policy focuses on enriching the lives of all of its citizens and celebrating modern achievements. Instead of protecting views of the icons of yesteryear this new London frames views to the Shard, the new debating tower at Westminster, the 2050 Tower of Culture and the world’s tallest co-living building.
The Imminent Diorama will be found at the Horniman Museum & Gardens.
Date and times: Monday 13 November to Sunday 26 November
Location: Horniman Museum and Gardens, 100 London Road, Forest Hill, London SE23 3PQ
