Johnson asks Trio of Practices to Design Heathrow New Town \

“Hawkins\Brown, Rick Mather Architects and Stirling Prize-winner Maccreanor Lavington have been asked by London Mayor Boris Johnson to draw up plans for a new town on the site of Heathrow Airport

The appointments are part of Johnson’s drive to convince government to back a new hub airport to the east of the capital – a move which could lead to the closure of Heathrow and the site redeveloped as housing.

The mayor’s vision for an airport in the Thames Estuary has been losing ground to other options aimed at solving the UK’s aviation capacity problems.”
