'Urban Plunge' at Roca London Gallery

Jane Withers is curating an intriguing exhibition exploring both existing schemes and future plans for urban river swimming, documented through drawings, photographs and models. The result of a study Withers undertook in her capacity as design consultant and co-founder of Wonderwater, the showcase was commissioned by Roca London Gallery, and investigates projects that enrich and humanize urban areas from London to New York.
