Local charity King’s Cross Community Projects have finalised all the fixtures and fittings to be attched to the sculpture that will soon be home to a stunning hanging garden on the KX gyratory system. This week they’ll be visiting the workshop where the sculpture is currently being built.
These last few months prior to installation have been very touch and go for the project. There’s a great deal to fit into a short amount of time, but they are getting there. They’ve had to delay again very slightly – it is an ambitious project with various unknowns to be negotiated between now and completion. It’s looking like they’ll get the sculpture up before Christmas using a specialist crane. They’ll then leave planting until the new year.
The project wouldn’t have stood a hope without the expert input freely given by Alan Conisbee and E C Harris. Planting is being done courtesy of Marie Clarke and Mike Jackson of Camden Garden Centre fame.
Don’t forget there’s still time to donate towards the project and get your name on the accompanying protective bollard that will stand in front of the sculpture. The bollard is also designed by artist Neil Ayling and will be a little piece of art in its own right. All donations welcome, just click the donate button on the right of the King’s Cross Community Projects website.
