Leading UK garden designer Andy Sturgeon created this garden for the EDF London Eye as part of London’s South Bank and Bankside Cultural Quarter’s Cityscapes festival.

 

The Pommery Eyegarden’s concept is quite simple in that the normal 360 degree views in the capsule are obscured and framed by a veil of a metropolis like towers and an encroaching orchard.  A sound piece by Darryl Moore evolves with the rotation of the capsule as the views to the horizon gradually extend.

The garden had to be designed and constructed in a manner that it could be installed overnight ready for the public at 8am the next day.
