IFHP Student Competition 2013

Elmside Garden Town: UCL students win prestigious international award for 21st Garden City vision for Battersea, London

June 2013

A group of students from the University College London (UCL) are celebrating winning an international competition to re-imagine a garden city for the 21st century. Their winning entry, which beat over 90 entries from across the world, sets out an inspiring vision of how the Nine Elms estate in Battersea, south London could be transformed into a beautiful, inclusive and sustainable new community – Elmside Garden Town.

This competition was run by leading housing and planning charity, the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) – originally the Garden Cities Association - as part of the International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) centenary celebrations in recognition of the inspiration that the garden city movement has generated for over a century across the globe.
