Now, many of you may be shouting, “riverlight isn’t a real word”, but it is. It is the name of a former 5-acre industrial estate, now a residential area, close to Battersea in London.
Riverlight residential area, Nine Elms, London, November 2019
Riverlight is the work of Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, and you may well recognise some aspects of their work. They are responsible for many structures that you may be familiar with, such as Melbourne metro, the Millennium Dome, Bordeaux Law Courts, International Towers Sydney and 3 World Trade Centre. For me, there’s also a big design link to the Pompidou Centre, and there’s a reason – that was the creation of Rogers and Piano.
