The project offers an antidote to the grand visions offered by the more historic stretches of Thames embankments. It celebrates the differences of the spaces through which it passes such that a journey along the path is an ever changing visual and cultural experience.

The narrative weaves in references to the many manifestations of Nine Elms including its associations with horticulture through New Covent Garden and Battersea Bundles, scars of heavy industry, lost Thames tributaries, MI6, boat wharves and railway goods yards.

With the emerging urban fabric in a state of constant flux the Thames Path provides a landscape framework that can be delivered as meanwhile, temporary and permanent installations. Churchman’s new landscape will be embellished by a temporary pavilion structure designed by architects Studio Weave, a structure that takes an industrial feature in the form of a water tower and transforms it into a raised garden and look out point.
