Group 3 in Canary Wharf

 DOCKLANDS MUSEUM

Within our trip to canary wharf we decided to visit Museum of London Docklands which showcased the history of the River Thames and London’s docks from the founding of the Roman settlement of Londinium to the demise of the working docks and the subsequent revival of docklands to become one of the world’s major financial districts. The museum is large and provides a comprehensive overview with historical artifacts, pictures and models including a recreation of a historic alley and quay and a scale model of the old London Bridge. The most interesting exhibition in my opinion was the exhibition that showcased how slavery evolved and eventually discarded.

Despite the fact that Canary Wharf was built in the recent past,it has managed gaining great publicity among the public and the media.It is also the most popular place to be discussed,as it is known as one of the richest areas of London.
The working population in the area rose from 13,400 to 90,000 in the period of just 10 years.
The interesting fact is that Canary Wharf place was named because that it was used for unloading fruit boxes,transported from the Canary Islands.
The tallest building called the Canary Wharf Tower which stands at 244 meters high and was built in 1991 and became the tallest building in Europe until the completion of the Messeturm in Germany the same year.
Each building in this area has its' own history,no matter that they all look brandy-new.Canary Wharf is already dubbed Manhattan on Thames and it continues to develop from day to day.

HISTORY

In the early 1950's the port industry of Canary Wharf began to experience a decline, which ultimately lead to its closing by the 1980's. What Canary Wharfis today is all owed to a man by the name of Michael von Clemm. Michael von Clemm conceived the idea of outsourcing work into offices in Canary Wharf, which led to proposals for a new and improved business district. The project came into fruition in the late 1980's and construction ultimately began in 1988. The first buildings in Canary Wharf were completed in 1991, lamentably the london property market had collapsed and Olympia and York Canary Wharf limited was pronounced bankrupt by May 1992. 
In 1995 former owners of  Olympia & York and many other investors bought the venture and eventually created Canary Wharf Group. The property market eventually recovered and demand for high floor-played A grade offices continued to rise. A critical occasion which also aided in the recovery of the Wharf was the introduction of the Jubilee line to the area.

WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
 
1200

During The Dark ages the Isle of Dogs was called Stepney Marsh and the 13th century was focused mainly on providing support for pastures, meadows as well as cornfields of the time. The contemporary name Isle of Dogs is believed to have originated from Royal Kenneds found in this area (type of dog).

 
1500
Londons Port was thriving with action, international trade was booming and Docklands of London became the focal point of departure for various merchant journeys. For instance in 1620 the Mayflower was sent to  sail from Rothithithe to America.
 
1800
These Docks were one of the most used ports in the world in 1800. The name Chanary Wharf itself came about from the prosperous fruit trade with the Chanary Islands. The great strecth of docks from St Katharine's by the Tower of London past Surrey Commercial docks, through the East and West Indies, these docks grew and developed over the period of approximately 200 years.

"One of the most peculiar features of this world- known business centre, that grabs your attention at the first glance, is it's environmentally friendly architecture.

Thus, the area has developed a special policy to minimise the harmfull impact of the estate. The huge amount of magnificent parks and teriffic open spaces can't help but impress."

"The business centre in New York (Wall Street, Empire State Building etc.) with it's lively atmosphere and enormorous  concrete jungles around seems to make the same picture of the whole Manchattan city, wealth, and prosperous, beyond the means of common people. Canary Wharf then has the contrast not only with New York's biggest business centre but with the whole London as well as regions around.    It represents the variety of social classes, social groups, lifestyles, landscapes giving a unique atmosphere such as you go through a portal and arrive in different worlds with absolutely different inhabitants. This place might be less notorious but much more attractive from the sociological point of view. As well as that it is a nice to be around in the formal but a beautiful and contradictory place."
