Crossorelle at Canary Wharf
A magical installation inspired by the Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech.
While dreaming of sunnier climates, this colourful installation transports visitors to Yves Saint Laurent’s famous gardens in Morocco. Take a walk through the spectacular roof top gardens and discover beautiful archways, stunning shadows and bold backdrops.
Created by artists Baker & Borowski, the design is inspired by the epic history of the West India Docks and the plants that were brought there from faraway lands, such as North Africa. The history of the area ignited thoughts of their own travels to Morocco where they were uplifted by the sumptuous colours. This is epitomised by the rich palette and shapes of the famous Jardin Majorelle. The art deco style can be seen in global design destinations such as Miami, Florida, and Napier, New Zealand. Crossorelle, is an abstract ode to Marjorelle and Miami, enlivening the Crossrail Place Roof Garden with a burst of colour and design.
