That's the one day of the year Londoners go outside and picnic on the lawn.

They're like mayflowers. They hatch, mate, and die all within 24 hours.

Oh well la-de-daa. Not all of us could afford to live on the Greenwich side of the river. Don't let your top hat hit you on the way out, Mr Monopoly man. The only people in the park near to where I lived were rats.

So where does the ad actually go on that "sculpture" then? Presumably on the side facing the road (ie the side that people will actually see), which has been conveniently left out of the renders. I'm all for innovative ways to display advertising, but this looks like something Zaha scribbled on the back of a napkin and gave to an assistant to cobble together in real life. Give it a few months of diesel fumes on the side of the A4 and we'll see if it ends up as spotless and pure as in those renders...

As ever, many thanks for your London updates SE9.

It has a smaller footprint than what currently occupies that space.

I love the design too, but isn't it a little out of place on that stretch of the A4?

On the London Full Summary page there is a render of it showing the side facing the roads.

Millharbour Village looks incredibly impressive. The Docklands is going to be so impressive.

I was in CW during the week taking pictures, and the immediate thing that impressed me was the amount of construction going on. The new Crossrail station is gorgeous in person.

As usual; fantastic updates SE9. This thread wouldn't be the same without you mate.

Perhaps but I can't see why all the good stuff has to be concentrated in prime areas.

It's on West Cromwell Road near the junction with Earls Court Road. Prime locale, though the A4 itself is busy.
