A Park in the Sky , 2009, London, United Kingdom

The Park in the Sky is 60m diameter, 150m in the air, and is supported on a 6m diameter steel shaft. The sense of drama is combined with an artistic intervention engaging the local community. When you look at the views from the top of the tower you will not only see London and all its landmarks but thousands of homes of people from all walks of life.
