Greenwich Foot Tunnel
Sensing the City
The Greenwich Foot Tunnel was originally built in 1902. The purpose of the tunnel was to provide reliable all-weather access by local residents to the London shipyards and docks on the north side of the Thames.
EXPLORING THE TUNNEL
Tunnel Thoughts - a 14m deep patch which allow tourists or residents to cross the river Thames.
Fresh, warm, short and timeless are the best words to describe this word full of life.
Musician feel the white walls with their tones, kids scream to ear the echo of their voice all over the tunnel and skater and cyclist don't cross it at the speed of light.
After hours exploring the tunnel and observing a few factores could define his habitantes, a few respect rules and most of them spend less then 2min in it.

Does the weather influence the how fast people move in the tunnel?

Moving through the Tunnel
A cold timeless door to an invisible moving world full of sound created by an infinity of fast and repetitive steps making their way toward the opposite door .
The warm daily chaotic flow of people became nearly sealed away by early night hours. Cold, silence, echoes and minor rumours take over the 370m link.
