London living bridge result announced

Very briefly ... the winner has been announced in RIBA's "ideas" competition to adapt London Bridge into a "living bridge". Laurie Chetwood's winning design features glass spires in which organic food would be grown. The competition attracted over 70 entries, which perhaps gives an indication of how many architects are currently short of work (given that this is an entirely speculative contest with no chance of ever being built).

The bridge is shown below - I'll save comment until some of the other entries are made public.
