The project is about understanding the Royal Docks afresh; as an urban condition that resists generic or formulaic description, and which demands precise analysis of its existing assets. Turning infrastructure into landscape is key to a public realm led approach that is both addressing existing issues with dominant dock, road and railway spaces and setting out a structure for temporary and permanent uses as these are developed over the next 40+ years.
