Getting it together - in the garden on top of a Tube station
The roof of Temple Underground Station, between the Thames and The Strand, is to come to blazing life of colour for the first time in its 150 year history.
The Artist’s Garden is being created by the artist Lakwena Maciver for theCOLAB Temple in a co-commission with 180 Studios in partnership with Westminster City Council.
But the 1,400sqm garden, a hidden secret to most of London on top of the station built by Sir Joseph Bazalgette in 1870, will be invisible to all but office workers looking down from several storeys high or passing aircraft. It will be open from October 6 to April 30 next year.
