Forgive the rather twee post, but I was walking home last night and not for the first time, I smiled inwardly when going underneath the arches at the top of Great Suffolk Street
. I find the blue lights and the way TATE is spelt out so
pretty. I also love the blue lighting under the arch on Webber Street
, and I can't think where off the top of my head but I've definitely been through a pink arch in SE1 as well.
Getting to the point, eventually, does anyone know who's idea this was? And who funds it? Is it (gasp) a good use of our council tax payments on behalf of Southwark Council
I think it adds such a lot to the urban feel and the arty atmosphere of the area. I love how the brickwork lights up - the perfect fusion of the post-modern and the industrial which is my favourite thing about living in SE1.
Anyone else like our not-just-functional lights in our railway arches?
