Tyers Estate Sculpture Garden

by Austin Emery

Innovative planting and artworks have been used to enhance the open spaces around the
Tyers Estate. Existing stands of mature plane trees are complemented by beds of ferns and other shade loving plants, alongside edible plants, such as lavender, fennel and dill. The garden absorbs rainwater, taking the load off existing drainage. A towering new stone sculpture now marks the entrance from Bermondsey Street. Created by Austin Emery, ‘The Shared’ utilises stone pieces carved by
participants of Leathermarket Community Sculpture Workshops.

Can you find… a piece of brick from the old railway station (within the sculpture, sunk into a hole…) ?
