Activating the Low Line: Allies & Morrison with Wandsworth & Lambeth Councils
20 Sept 2023
Architecture / Landscape
Once abandoned to industry, the unique Victorian viaduct running through the heart of Battersea to Vauxhall now presents a new opportunity for Wandsworth Council and Lambeth Council to work together to open up vibrant public spaces.
In a celebration of local heritage and culture, historic and hidden arches could be brought to life with new business and community spaces alongside walking routes and leisure activities. Building on the successes of the neighbouring Southwark Low Line, the arches are envisaged as a new place to support a wide range of activities. Join the architects to hear how reimagining the 250 arches that make up this Victorian low line could provide residents, local workers and visitors with a new way to experience this exciting part of London.
