Woah! London to get ICE RINK ON THE THAMES by freezing parts of river

A new ice rink proposed by design company NBBJ is set to be the mother of all ice rinks.

Why? Because it’s going to be made with frozen parts of the Thames.

The temporary ice rinks, called “Frost Flowers”, could be made near the South Bank.

NBBJ says it will submerge large circular discs into the water that would isolate a thin basin of water from the flow of the river and help the water to freeze.

The surface produced could then be used for ice rinks.

Christian Coop, design director of NBBJ, said: “In a dense, modern city such as London the Thames provides a unique open vista where the history and origins of this great city can be viewed.

“A draw for Londoners and tourists alike, the South Bank has become a bustling leisure area with bars and markets lining the river. New space is now desperately needed, and accordingly we looked to our heritage to find one possible solution.”
