Shortlist for Three Mills Playspace Competition Announced


Four shortlisted design teams (erect architecture, We Made That with Free Play, Studio Weave with Wayward Plants, and Kinnear Landscape Architects) have been selected to take part in the second stage of the Three Mills Play-space Competition. This selection was made following an open call for expressions of interest from those interested in proposing designs for a new play-space at Three Mills Green located in the borough of Newham, East London.

Three Mills Green Playspace competition launched


In 2011, Three Mills Green underwent widespread landscaping works designed by Churchman Landscape Architects and 5th Studio. In Autumn 2011 Lee Valley Regional Park Authority, Olympic Park Legacy Company and The Legacy List ran an international design competition – run by the Architecture Foundation – for new proposals to introduce play to the site.
