5th Studio completed a study for Transport for London and the Mayor’s Road Task Force exploring the future of London’s streetscape environments.
The study explored a collection of identified typologies - ranging from local residential streets to urban highways and arterial routes. Each typology was studied to identify key issues and problems - which often relate to the competing ‘place’ and ‘movement’ functions of the road. Equivalent propositional drawings identify a range of best-practice and forward-looking interventions which could help to deliver the long-term transformation of the quality of London’s public realm environment.
The work was developed in discussion with, and under the scrutiny of, a panel of expert advisers brought together by the Mayor’s Road Task Force. It is intended to complement rather than replace Transport for London’s existing Streetscape Design Guide.
