Art and Architecture in Docklands - Past and Present Mrs Sue Jackson Thursday 15 February 2018

Over the last 25 years, the Docklands area of London has been transformed. Here are not only some of the great Georgian warehouses and dock buildings, but state-of-the art office buildings designed by the great architects of today. Canary Wharf is also a dramatic and witty sculpture park. Even the lamp posts, benches, pavements, planters and ventilation shafts are specially commissioned and designed to the highest standards.
