A Floating Viewpoint for Regent’s Canal in London

The Finnish Institute in London has been enlisted to help on a new Floating Viewpoint structure to overlook Regent’s Canal, which will be unveiled in 2013.

On a glorious mission to promote the cultural exchange between the U.K. and Finland, The Finnish Institute in London has been enlisted to help on a new Floating Viewpoint structure to overlook Regent’s Canal, which will be unveiled in 2013.

The project is a collaborative effort between the Architecture Foundation and the London Wildlife Trust, and hopes to become an educational destination for local residents and schools. A shortlist of three, young Finnish architects are currently in the running to design the floating structure, which will be installed near the newly regenerated King’s Cross area of the canal.

“With this collaboration, we want to help introduce more Londoners to the vital co-existence of nature and the city. We hope that the viewpoint will become a proud London landmark,” says Hanna Harris, the Arts & Culture director at the Finnish Institute in London.

In our recent Catalyst issue, we spoke about the rising popularity of floating architecture, which endeavors to tackle the issues of rising sea levels and over-populated urban dwellings.  We can’t wait to see the winning design, which will be announced in early 2013. – Samantha Fox
