About the event

Designer James Bowthorpe has created miniature versions of buildings that neighbourhoods need to thrive, like libraries, town halls and hospitals. They have been cast from concrete, and inlaid with materials collected from the Thames along the South Bank. These buildings appear on Southbank Centre’s beach, but look up and see more houses in the trees, which light up at night.

A poem by Imtiaz Dharker can be found amidst the buildings, which was written in the borough of the City of London, as part of the London Lines project.
