Tooley Street Triangle

Built

This striking landmark outside the entrance to London Bridge Station has transformed a busy but unloved area of pavement into a public square - or triangle - to rest, meet and find your way.

NEW LONDON AWARDS 2021

Shortlisted in the MEANWHILE category

Tooley Street Triangle is a temporary wayfinding project in a small, busy space by London Bridge Station. It consists of two elements: a beacon that offers information and seating; and a scale map of the area on the ground.

Each side of the beacon contains descriptive text, finger posts that point to important local landmarks, and a mirror ball that reflects the area around. It promotes exploration, increasing footfall to quieter areas and local businesses.

The project was commissioned through a competition run by the London Festival of Architecture.

Vote for this project in the 'People's Choice award. The voting deadline is 1 November 2021.
