Pavement Art Gallery by Patrick McEvoy
‘Throughout London, York stone slabs form a canvas for pavement artists. These artists draw directly onto the pavement and their illustrations only exist for a short time. The Pavement Art Gallery celebrates pavement art by presenting flagstones on a series timber easels for passers-by to engage with. You are invited to create your own pavement art using the chalk provided.
The gallery was made with the help of Marshalls Paving, Solid Geometry Structural Engineers, EWM Joinery, University of Westminster and Prewett Bizley Architects.’
This parklet is one of three temporary parklets across the City and the result of a design competition organised by the London Festival of Architecture and the City of London Corporation. Each parklet showcases one of London’s brilliant emerging architects and designers, while transforming kerbside areas into a place to rest, relax and admire the City – a public space fit for a festival.
