‘Where The Wild Things Are’ imagines a new safari park, wilderness and leisure strip as essential social infrastructure linking Deptford in south-east London to Canary Wharf in the Docklands. The strip is a linear void in the city – a mnemonic of the global and natural world around us – a filter through which to see the city in a new light. 


Cutting through some of the most opulent and deprived parts of London, the project juxtaposes the sublime and the ridiculous, creating a surrealist, new non-hierarchical territory – a synthetic natural oasis where the strangest thing is the quotidian outside world.
