Description: Lubricity is a proposal for future London – in the tidal Thames Estuary, where the limits of London are reached and the Greenbelt, transportation infrastructures, and new industries intersect. The design recognises a fluid landscape and aims to slow the need to commute from this urban margin while simultaneously facilitating movement of migrating birds, energy fields, and new public forms.

Lubricity was developed for the Architecture Foundation and Royal Academy exhibition,
London As It Could Be Now: New Visions for the Thames. It was exhibited at the Royal Academy, London, and published in Architects’ Journal, Building Design, and Arch Daily.
