Triumphal arch in honour of Transport for London

Pablo Bronstein

“The dramatic architecture of London Underground was the principal inspiration behind my work. In particular I quote from the interior architecture of the early Metropolitan Railway, such as the wonderful statuary and Piranesi­style stonework at Baker Street. Decorative details that are found within the oldest parts of the Tube are put instead on the outside of a building. My structure is a triumphal arch in honour of the Tube’s anniversary, so the design harks back to the optimism of the grand 19th-century engineering projects, as well as the gloom of the high Victorian era.”
