Caught by the River

Water Water Everywhere

29th April 2009


My brother sent me this the other day and it is ace. From the BLDG Blog (click here for large scale printable version of the illustration), it’s a prospective utopian future, one where the lost rivers of London – from the Fleet to Hackney Brook – have resurfaced and been incorporated into the grand scheme of things. Interestingly, this very idea was posited by Boris Johnson only last year as a way to combat global warming in the capital city. Myself, I quite like the idea of my flat in E8 getting a waterside view… that said it might make cycling to work a bit squishy.
