The Mayor of London’s recent call for architects to design a High Line-inspired space saw designers scouring the city for under-used green plots. Y/N Studio took a strange yet extremely thoughtful route, focusing on the city’s enormous retired canal. The LidoLine would not only encourage city-wide exercise and traffic-friendly commuting, but would also revitalize the canal’s waterfront with lounge chairs, events, and corporate sponsored floating rafts and amphitheaters.

While the design didn’t win, its amazing to see the new and innovative ways designers are reinventing areas with what they already have.
