Murky Waters proposes a counter-regeneration strategy for London’s Docklands, a heavily overwritten area littered with the results of late twentieth-century masterplans and economic zoning. Drawing on a rich history of conflict (including between Thatcher’s London Docklands Development Company and The People’s Plan for the Royal Docks, a popular movement aided by the GLC in coalition with local campaign groups) the project is an experiment exploring the possibilities unlocked by embracing conflict as a creative and necessary design agent in the planning of contested sites.

Sited within the LLDC ‘site’ boundary, the project uses real tensions present in 3 large-scale proposed developments as the catalysts for creating new democratic typologies which reflect multiple desires.
