New York-based architecture firm Diller Scofidio + Renfro (DS+R) have unveiled the first series of renderings of "The Tide", a linear park planned for London's Greenwich Peninsula.

The future leisure area will comprise 500 hectares of Thameside public realm and feature an array of contemporary art installations, sculpture gardens, terraces, and promenades.

The space will also play host to a number of audio wellness portals (designed by BeBox), eateries, and a clubhouse with an exercise studio.

The brainchild of lifestyle coach Chris Connor, BeBox programmes have been described as "meditative audiovisual soundscapes" that connect users to the "beauty of the present moment".

Other members of the Tide project team include designers GROSS MAX and Neiheiser Argyros.

Arup devised the scheme's ground-level structures, while AKT II took care of its elevated portions.

Speaking on the project, Benjamin Gilmartin, partner at DS+R, commented: "The design of The Tide seeks to embed a new public realm into the daily rhythms of Greenwich Peninsula by layering together its currents of activity into a thickened landscape.

"Visitors will experience the park from varying vantage points, from street level up to nine-metre-high elevated paths that weave through the site to plug into the existing network of leisure, art, and social life across neighbourhoods.

The park is being built in phases, with the first stage of the attraction – a hectare-long walkway and promontory with gardens and cafés – scheduled to open on 5 July.
