Canada Water Masterplan

Canada Water is now a much reduced, land-locked dock basin, belying the importance of its past. The residual body of water, ringed by a barrier, is now perceived as dangerous, wasting much of this valuable asset. The masterplan places an entertainment venue in the water and gently slopes the public square down into the space. The roof has the ability to be open or closed, transparent or blacked-out and surrounding residential development on top of retail and restaurants steps back, creating an amphitheatre around the basin.
