What's The Time?

This is part of a competition entry we made for the London Borough of Hillingdon.  The brief called for a shelter and clock tower for Hayes town centre.  We proposed a planting scheme four four trees that blossomed in each season, a clock with four faces that told the time, the weather, the date and the year and a gold canopy for performance, markets and meetings.  Hayes has a history of brick making and much London stock brick would have been produced in the area, for this reason we also proposed to work with local artist Syvastie Poonwassie to make the bricks for the clock tower in the town centre with local people.
