Genslerís estuary airport

World renowned architect Gensler has unveiled plans for a floating airport in the Thames Estuary to rival that of rival architect Foster + Partners, and the hypothetical Boris Johnson scheme.

The London Britannia airport would have four runways, 400 gates and operate 24 hours a day.

The firm said it would also be the most sustainable airport option with its own energy generation from tidal, wave, wind and solar power.

It proposed that Heathrow would then be turned into a garden city housing up to 300,000 people.

Besides the Davies Commission (see BTNews 10 September) Boris Johnson is planning his own London airports’ enquiry using TfL for the research.  This is expected to report within 12 months. www.london.gov.uk www.gensler.com/viewpoint/features/24
