'Assemble', an architecture collective, and artist Matthew Raw have partnered for an overhaul of the exterior of Seven Sisters Underground in London. The new exterior of the metro station features nebulously patterned tiles covering the entirety of the entrance.
Assemble and Raw named the new design 'Clay Station', as a reference to the material and process used in firing the handmade tiles. The flowing, muddied coloring of the tiles is meant as a reference to the hundreds of different tile designs that can be seen throughout the expansive London Underground system.
The tiles were all crafted and fired on site at Seven Sisters Underground station, with Assemble bring in a kiln to do so. The artists also worked with local residents and community groups to run classes on ceramics during that time.
