Versatile London

The main goal  of this graduation project – based on the desire to create a resilient urban environment -is to prevent the city of London from flooding, retrench the pressure in existing areas and to reduce the need for the «super sewer». Moreover the phases of transformation from existing space to a new form, function, or facilities are investigated. In this case the aim is to illustrate how adaptable existing urban fabric can be. This adaptive urban fabric contributes to more attractive and vibrant street life, therefore the project makes the city not only resilient, but also an even more interesting place. The adaptive character of urban environment can be best compared with a water park – some elements are used to transport water, others are used to store water, but they work as one system.
