“It has been amazing to embark on this journey with the Camden Highline, and we’re only just getting started. This iconic park will enliven the capital – it is a symbol of hope for London’s post- covid economic and social recovery and I cannot wait to walk it!”

— Simon Pitkeathley, CEO of Camden Highline

Our Jury Panel, chaired by Richard Terry and comprising Alison Brooks, Wayne Hemingway, Edward Jarvis, Indy Johar, and Kathryn Moore, had the tricky task of shortlisting only five teams from 75 extremely strong international submissions.


“The Camden Highline has the potential to be become an invaluable community asset for Camden, King’s Cross and the capital as a whole. It will create new green space, connect neighbourhoods and attract visitors from across London and beyond. I look forward to learning more about each team’s vision for this exciting project.”
