Andy was recently commissioned to design three unique roof gardens on top of London’s iconic Battersea Power Station in the biggest urban landscape in Britain. The roof gardens, which are part of the redevelopment of the 39-acre architectural landmark, will combine to create a two and half acre ‘Garden of the Elements’ referencing Fire, Water and Air, to embody the original use of the Power Station.
Here is a link to Andy’s website including his portfolio and news with details of his latest Battersea Power Station project.
