Once more, with ceiling

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Hawkins\Brown must be looking to put its lost Paolozzis behind it with the commissioning of French artist Daniel Buren for the entrance and ticket hall areas of Tottenham Court Rd Underground station. The artist first came to public attention by applying, according to TfL’s press release ‘unauthorised striped public works around Paris’. Well, now he’s done them in London – fully authorised this time – and presented SAS with a golden opportunity to install its complementing baffle systems in the ceilings. If this isn’t a perfect example of life imitating art, then I don’t know what is.
