The Industrial Resolution

The bio-filter jetties would be functional while creating a valuable public amenity.

The concept could be established at multiple sites along the Thames.

The jetties could be enjoyed in a variety of different ways.

The Industrial Resolution

Use biotechnology to regenerate contaminated landscapes

The Industrial Revolution is a vision to create a parkland thoroughfare along the route of the Thames by linking and regenerating contaminated landscapes using bio-filter jetties.

Bio-filter technology cleans grey water run-off efficiently, ecologically and sustainably through percolation and the bio-filter jetties would promote improved long-term air and water quality. They could be established at multiple sites, whether attached to pre-existing Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems or integrated with green roofs and parkland.

The concept offers infinite variation of style, character, and connectivity, as each bio-filter jetty is self-contained and can be given an individual characteristic, such as play, community gardening or public art. The linear design allows efficient implementation of mooring, walking, cycling, and tramway infrastructure to link together along the Thames.
