Vauxhall Missing Link
Location: London Borough of Lambeth
Date: 2013 - 2014
Client: Vauxhall One BID
The Promenade of Curiosities is a urban design framework for the Vauxhall One BID area from the new American Embassy in the south and the Southbank the north. This report was commissioned by the Vauxhall One BID in June 2013 and followed an international design competition called; “Vauxhall the Missing Link”.
Vauxhall One is a business-led organisation whose key priorities are set by its members. They focus on place making and place management – making Vauxhall feel safer, integrating the day and night-time economies, building employment and training opportunities and improving the public realm.
The competition sought wide ranging ideas to improve connectivity and improve the sense of place through exemplary improvements to the public realm. This framework represents the further development of competition winning concepts to create a working document that can be used to inform project implementation and can be used for design guidance by developers and agencies responsible for improvements to the public realm.
