A Look At The Future Of Burgess Park


The two shortlisted designs for a £6 million facelift for Burgess Park between Walworth and Camberwell, south London, have been unveiled.

The image above shows the entry by LDA Design, which opens up the park's wide spaces and prioritises wildlide and cultural events. The rival sketch comes from Gillespies, and takes a more radical approach, factoring in a lakeside amphitheatre and outdoor gyms.The commission for this 46-hectare park has turned out to be a popular one: the council received 112 expressions of interest when the project was first tendered. Once the winner has been announced next month, following public consultation, it's expected to be completed ahead of the 2012 Olympics.
