Organised by Vauxhall One with the RIBA and the Landscape Institute, the competition asked for submissions to find a green infrastructure solution to this part of London, divided by a railway line and with busy roads. Proposals include a lido in the Thames, planted cycle ways and elevated gardens above the railway.

Schemes will be on display from 8-19 April at the Garden Museum and on a walking trail that runs through the arches in Vauxhall, from the station to the museum.

Chris Law, public realm and development director for the Vauxhall BID said;‘The number and quality of the entries are remarkable. There is a lively variation of ideas and many reoccurring themes. Our aim is to help create a great public realm for Vauxhall.‘The ideas range from the bold imaginative concept, through quirky and fun to the highly practical and innovative. Some are even plainly bonkers. But this just adds to the amazing creative input.’
