The Hydrosocial Thames was created in collaboration with peers in Conflicts and Negotiation, as part of the Masters in Research Architecture. The project was an investigation into the ways London's central river moves and organizes the city's architectures. We envisioned deeper community engagement, but the project needed to move online mid-way because of COVID-19. The resulting archive presents our internal process and various research methodologies.
"The river Thames is deeply embedded in the history(1) of London's financial, ecological, infrastructural, and logistical development. It has and continues to be an organising principle in the design of the city's multiple architectures. Focusing on its speculative dimensions, we decided to examine the "Thames 2050 Vision" report through the Thames estuary."
