South East Radial

South-eastern England is increasingly a dormitory landscape, spatially and economically dependent on London. This ever-widening commuter belt results in dwindling civic and community life and, in parallel, an ever more stretched transport infrastructure, both trends which looks set to continue as London’s influence spreads.

South East Radial proposes a network of new settlements that occupy and intersect with the railway networks around London, distributing dwellings and civic functions across its length, from town hall termini in locations like Bishopsgate to primary schools at the end of the branch line. Through this strategy, hybrid programmes emerge wherein the daily grind of travel is juxtaposed with community life.

South East Radial brings commute and community together, benefitting not just the commuter but the territories and communities they pass through.
