Living in the Landscape wins Future Cities Forum award

Peabody’s Living in the Landscape green infrastructure framework has won the Master Planning category in the Future Cities Forum summer 2021 awards.

For this category judges were looking for masterplans that incorporated sustainability, outstanding design and the strength of biodiversity.

Living in the Landscape will act as a blueprint for how natural systems can change lives for the better in Thamesmead and will ensure landscape is as central to the town’s regeneration as housing or transport.

It sets out an ambitious programme that will ensure Thamesmead is more biodiverse, sociable, healthy and inclusive, and it supports Peabody’s aim to put the vulnerable first and co-design change with local residents.

Judge Kim Wright, Chief Executive of Lewisham Council, praised ‘the sheer scale and impact of the project’, saying she admired ‘the connected nature of the design’.

While Annelie Kvick, Partner at Grimshaw, said she felt that Living in the Landscape is a ‘really ambitious project that sets out a clear vision’.
