Camden Highline

In 2020 Camden Highline held an international open competition to reimagine the 1.2km strip of disused railway running between King’s Cross and Camden Town in North London as an urban park. We were very proud to be one of the five finalist teams taken through to the second stage of the competition.

The preparation of our submission with our extraordinary team was absorbing and stimulating. Inspiring discussion across disciplinary boundaries lead to an interconnected eco-centric design approach that we hoped to evolve and grow for the long-term. Our approach was set within the context of interconnected global emergencies – biodiversity, health and climate change, alongside local action that nurtures community capacity and ecological resilience.
