Taken in the Barbican Station Pop-up Garden This is the first community garden on the Underground, created by a partnership between Friends of City Gardens and Transport for London. The garden was designed by Gensler, the international landscape architect practice, with a strong, linear scheme of planters that fill the 100-metre-long disused platform. Planters are grouped; a scheme of red vertical posts rise in the form of a wave. The design mimics the acceleration and braking of trains arriving and leaving the station. The planting complements the wave pattern with multi-stemmed trees, climbers and substantial shrubs providing height. Colourful plants and vegetables contribute a pollen- and nectar-rich mix to boost biodiversity in this challenging environment. The garden is sponsored by local businesses, Hamptons International, Kingston Smith and Redrow London. The planting was designed, installed and is maintained by Friends of City Gardens volunteers and will remain in place until the end of 2016. [Opensquares.org]
