Greysmith Associates were shortlisted in the Royal Docks ideas competition which looked for ambitious proposals to make the Royal Docks a world class, sustainable space more resilient to environmental, social and economic challenges. The competition was organised by the Landscape Institute and Ecobuild, supported by The Mayor of London.

Our proposal puts a new focal crossing point at the heart of the Royal Docks in a strategic location, in the form of a Floating Forest! This is intended to be a unique landscape feature designed to offer a dramatic contrast to the existing open / windswept character of the Royal Docks, connecting neighbourhoods, enticing pedestrian and cycle access across the significant existing barriers.
