Camden Highline Competition – a new park for London
A competition to find a design team that can deliver a stunning design for the Camden Highline, a new park and linear walk linking London’s Camden Town to King’s Cross, on a disused railway viaduct.
The client’s aspiration is to create a park for everybody, connecting people in the area both physically and with new community activities.
Colander Associates is delighted to announce that it will be managing this high-profile competition on behalf of the Camden Highline Charity, to find an exceptional team to design a new park for London. The Camden Highline will occupy 1.1km of disused railway viaduct running from Camden Town to King’s Cross and the vacant platforms at Camden Road station, with a number of access points along its route to connect it to road level.
This is a very special project that needs an exceptional team both to design it and deliver it, one that balances design, community, nature and innovation alongside technical experience. For this reason, we invite submissions from partnerships which include established and experienced organisations alongside emerging designers.
As well as representatives of the Charity, the jury will include Alison Brooks of Alison Brooks Architects; Wayne Hemingway of Hemingway Design; Ed Jarvis of Camden Council; Indy Johar, Good Growth by Design Advocate to the Mayor of London; Kathryn Moore, President of the International Federation of Landscape Architects.
To express an interest, and access further information about this project, competitors should visit https://www.colander.co.uk/architectural-competitions and follow the link. This process is being managed by Colander Associates Ltd and all general enquiries should be addressed to email@example.com
The competition is following a two-stage OJEU compliant process. At Stage 1, applications are invited in the form of an expression of interest. Up to five teams will be shortlisted to Stage 2 and will be asked to respond to an Invitation to Tender and attend an interview with the Jury Panel. An honorarium of £10,000 will be paid to the shortlisted Stage 2 teams.

Camden Highline Crowdfunding Campaign Beats Target
A crowdfunding campaign for the Camden Highline has raised £64k, almost double its initial target a month after beginning.
The project, a rival to New York’s iconic High Line, will provide a pedestrian and cycle route to link the world-famous Camden Market with the recently redeveloped King’s Cross area.
Local business group Camden Town Unlimited recently launched the crowdfunding campaign to raise £40,000 for a feasibility study into the proposals.
