Concrete Gardens in the Sky

Most of the Easter Holidays was spent on DIY and the endless work it seems to spawn. But we spared a day to go to London. We were at the Barbican for These New Puritans and the vast JohnPaul Gaultier retrospective but you are wasting a visit to the Barbican if you don't go for a wander in the concrete gardens.

This is Tim Science under a white sky; note the large planters, some integrated into the design of the entire space, others write-ins, fashionable raised beds full of vegetables and edibles bright green with early season enthusiasm. Concrete brut and cluttering greenery; the perfect companions for the utopian future.
