This presentation box was commissioned after my box factories had been spotted at the V&A Hackney Wick Take back in Swan Wharf. The request was to make a box base on one of the main building designed for the Sweetwater bid on the Olympic. Carillion-igloo and Genesis Housing Association presented it with their bid to the LLCD (London Legacy Development Corporation). The development for this site was to build a new neighborhood consisting of 650 brand new homes, thus creating a vibrant new community on the west of the Park and linking to existing communities in Hackney Wick and Fish Island. The Sweetwater neighborhood would consist of apartments and family homes with private gardens and communal green space alongside the Lee Navigation canal as well as a new primary school, two nurseries, library and health center.
Carillion Igloo Genesis also have plans to build Britain’s first ‘floating village’ at London’s Royal Docks!
