About

Following our Stage 2 short-listing, and in response to London Festival of Architecture's call for improvements to the Thessaly Railway Bridge underpass in Wandsworth, we proposed the tallest periscope in London at the Ascalon St. entrance of the underpass, balanced by a Camera Obscura/ Kaleidoscope at the St. George’s School entrance. These powerful markers were to be combined with tiled friezes by fine artist, Mary Evans, within the underpass and complimented by enhanced lighting, elegant decorative tile accents and a sequence of directional floor markers between Ascalon St. and Corunna St.

This competition entry was carried out in collaboration with architecture firm, ArchitectureDoingPlace, Zaynab Bunsie of arts organisation, WriteTalkListen and visual artist, Mary Evans.
