Folio: Peter Barber’s 100 Mile City

A dense and intense edge to London

Model of Peter Barber’s proposal for a linear ‘100 Mile City’ to wrap around London. Conceived as a ‘circular Rome or a stretched Porto’, this street-based, four-storey swathe of development 200m wide contains housing, schools, shops and factories.

Dense and intense, it is suburbia reprogrammed, hybridised and compressed, a catalytic vision of urbanism.
