For the city's Festival of Architecture, a mundane London railway bridge was revived with bold splashes of color. Locally based designer Yinka Ilori breathed new life into the area with his incredibly engaging and playful color combinations. The composition was developed in collaboration with local residents and a primary school in the area. Dubbed 'Happy Street,' the artwork boasts "56 patterned-enamel panels decorated with 16 different colors."
The site of the revived London railway bridge was known to be a "forbidding environment." The infusion of Yinka Ilori's ultra-charismatic and nuanced designs is a bid to "make the area more welcoming" and the initative is fully supported by the local council.
Aside from its incredibly cheerful demeanor, the Happy Street installation is permanent and aesthetically pleasing, with an emphasis on durability.
