Thamesmead the Greater London Council’s futuristic new town began construction 50 years ago.  The planned housing was not completed but much of the landscape structure was and now amounts to 350 acres of parks lakes and waterways. Peabody took over Thamesmead in 2014 and are now leading a 30 year plan to regenerate the town with a particular emphasis on landscape as the one unique element that will unite the place and make it a healthy and unique place to live and work.

Lecturer: Dr. Phil Askew Head of Landscape and Place Making, Peabody.
