12. AJ Climate Champions with Hattie Hartman. Continuing its focus on landscape, Climate Champions turns its attention to two recent high-profile competitions where green and blue infrastructure promise to drive the design.
First up is Thamesmead Waterfront, a 100-hectare riverfront site in Greenwich to be developed in a joint venture between Lendlease and Peabody, the site’s owner. To hear about the winning scheme, we speak to Phil Askew, director of landscape and placemaking at Peabody, and Selina Mason, director of masterplanning at Lendlease.
The Home of 2030 competition called for innovative home designs that are ‘green, age-friendly and healthy’. We speak to Sarah Jones-Morris, director of Bristol-based Landsmith Associates and the landscape architect behind Igloo Regeneration’s winning proposal, about how green and blue infrastructure permeate the scheme.
