“We are very pleased to have completed the installation of our designs for the Tooley Street Triangle. The beacon and the map are intended as playful and enjoyable additions to the streetscape that will improve legibility and give identity to this small but important part of the public realm. The project has involved a large number of different partners and stakeholders and we would like to thank Team London Bridge and LFA for their commitment in realising the commission”.
“The unveiling of The Tooley Street Triangle could not have come at a better time. While so many of us are looking forward to getting to know London again, we won’t be getting lost outside London Bridge station anymore. I’m delighted that people are beginning to enjoy London’s buildings, streets and spaces once again, and Charles Holland Architects’ joyful and quirky installation captures London’s spirit of welcome and creativity.”
“The Tooley Street Triangle is a beautiful object, a meeting point, a source of historical information and a map to explore some of our quieter routes to the river, Tower Bridge and Borough Market. Located adjacent to the site of the original London Bridge, this busy small space has been confusing and underwhelming for visitors over many years, but will now help people walking through this historic area. As the health crisis restrictions ease, we hope this beacon will be a symbol of renewal and recovery now London Bridge businesses are returning and open for business.”
