contributed by davidb

The London Regatta Centre is located in the heart of London's Docklands, opposite the City Airport. Using the Royal Albert Dock it has a 7 lane, 2km long course. It comprises of two separate buildings. The club house and the boat store. The club house is 90m long and has two floors. The ground houses the reception, changing facilities, a gym and a powered rowing tank, whilst the upper level holds the bar/club room together with a restaurant and kitchen. The boathouse is probably slightly more interesting. 70m long, it features three 6m wide bays. Each bay is defined by a row of columns, featuring cantilevered brackets used to support the boats. Simple spine beams connect the columns longitudinally, and these are also used to support 6m wide x 1.4m long sheets of 3mm thick stainless steel which fall to follow a natural catenary between the beams. Sliding doors at either end allow access and egress for the boats. Both buildings use stone-filled gabion cages to great effect.
