Greenpeace’s Heathrow fortress

This seems like an interesting project..

Britain’s leading architects are being invited to enter a competition to design an impenetrable fortress to be built on the land earmarked for a third runway at Heathrow.

The plot of land where the stronghold will be built – in the village of Sipson to the north of the airport – was bought last year by Greenpeace, which then distributed ownership of it to people across the world. There are now over 60,000 beneficial owners of the runway land with more people signing up every day on the Greenpeace website, creating a legal headache for any government trying to push ahead with Heathrow expansion.

Press release.
