Nelly Fuentes and Ian M. Ellis proposed a lush green renovation of London’s antiquated Victoria Station for London’s recent Green Infrastructure Ideas Competition. Hosted by the Garden Museum, the Landscape Institute, and the Mayor of London, the High Line-inspired competition sought to find innovative ways to integrate green spaces into the British Capital. Ellis and Fuentes proposal not only renews Victoria Station, but connects woodlands, grasslands and marshlands along the River Thames to the transit hub, introducing low-impact techniques for water management so as to protect urban ecosystems, establish new wildlife habitats and encourage exploration of the city.
