WELL-Line (sketch) by Chetwoods

Chetwoods Architects present their proposal for the reuse of one of London’s hidden pieces of infrastructure: the underground Postal Railway.

In July, the RA launched ‘Urban Jigsaw’ – an open call inviting architects to propose speculative uses for London’s unused brownfield sites. In this free, informal event, one of the architects chosen to develop their proposal for display in an exhibition in the RA’s Architecture Space presents their worked up project.

About the project

“Transforming London’s longest brownfield site, the underground Postal Railway, into a supply line linking a series of ‘wells’ built on brownfield sites to support and re-connect city-centre manufacturing, logistics and social enterprise.”

Established by Laurie Chetwood in 1988 the Practice has 70 architects working in London, Leeds and Birmingham. They work in America, Russia, Dubai, China and throughout the UK.
