Happy Street arrives in Nine Elms

We were happily surprised to see this new installation by bright young London based designer Yinka Ilori (also known for the recent Colour Palace at Dulwich Picture Gallery) appear on the route leading from Wandsworth Road to one of Rawls major clients Battersea Power Station. Happy Street has been slowly revealing itself on our morning cycle past over the last couple of weeks and is is now complete. The treatment of the formerly foreboding railway underpass uses bright colour panels geometric patterns and rainbow themes to create a journey that cannot help but elicit a smile as it enlivens the public realm.
