Controversial £12 Million Floating Motorway for London Olympics Will Only Be For “Fat Cats”
Dezeen almost had us fooled with their awesome April Fool’s post about Mayor Boris Johnson’s plans to build a floating motorway on the Thames River in time for this year’s Olympic games. “Designed” by Dowling Jones & Stone, the £12 million floating highway was supposed to prevent a total traffic gridlock in already congested London but only for the Olympic “fat cats.” This would not be the most extraordinary thing we have posted on Inhabitat, so we were admittedly convinced it was real! The fact that Dowling Jones & Stone posted a render and description on their CGI and Architectural Photography webpage is what made the joke so compelling, although their use of the phrase Olympic “fat cats” to describe their clients probably should have tipped us off!
