Future Pace



Project lead: Vicki Young

Futurecity was appointed to identify, develop and deliver a range of strategic projects and partnerships to help build a cultural identity for Greenwich Peninsula - a new 150-acre mixed-use riverside district with 15,000 new homes and £500m to be spent on public places and social spaces.

Peninsula 5 Kilometre Running Track (‘P5K’) concept reimagined the Peninsula’s public realm as a monumental, elevated, artist-designed sculptural ribbon for runners, walkers and cyclists. Visible from the air, it would entwine the Peninsula, bringing together its vast but disconnected and developing landscape.

The P5K concept was devised in partnership with Futurecity, engineers Price and Myers, Andrew Missingham and members of the Nike Foundation offering PR, brand and sponsorship opportunities and a new iconic sculpture for Greenwich Peninsula. The P5K concept was masterplanned by architects Allies & Morrison and phase one will be designed by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro and landscape architects Gross Max.
