You might be interested to see what is planned for the Crucifix Lane arches at the top of Bermondsey Street as part of the regeneration of this part of town. They are planning a new linear landscaped park in the Shand Street arch that is artificially lit with electro-illuminenscent light panels - only the thickness of paper. Should be great if it gets the funding.
There are also plans for new live/work units; shops and an arts space.

Thanks - so I saw. As per usual with all of this, still light on the specifics on when these projects will actually happen. One would have thought that this would be a basic ingredient of some of the press releases the various regeneration bodies issue...
It was an "ideas competition" not a project design competition- provides young architectural practices with a showcase for their ideas i.e. no guarantee of funding and no obligation on Spacia (who own the arches) to take the winning entry forward.
Be interesting to see whether the works that Pool of London have agreed to fund will allow any of the vision to be taken forward.
