Bizarre London tower pier plans prove highly controversial (Picture: Caters)

A bizarre futuristic design for a new ‘tower pier’ along the River Thames in London has been unveiled.

The multicoloured concept, which is known as ‘the diving board’, features blue and purple tentacles on a structure that would be based by the historical Tower Bridge.

Designed by artist Satoru Sugihara, the structure combines the trademark elements of both London and Los Angeles into one vast landmark.

However, the controversial structure is unlikely to be built in the near future as it would require a significant amount of structural analysis.

Sugihara reportedly said the designs were aimed at ‘pushing the relatively new and experimental computational design techniques for an achievable project integrating design concepts, structural ideas and usability of the space’.

He added: ‘To capture common qualities in London and Los Angeles, I was looking into waterfront spaces and tried to extract some quality from bridges over the Thames river and piers on Los Angeles beaches.
