Wall treatment (1986)
Polymer concrete and stainless steel
Location: throughout the station
On the brightly coloured polymer concrete walls, the artist has placed an ingeniously designed stainless steel element that performs a variety of functions as it continues through the station. At times a handrail, arm rest, support for seats or signs, this artwork is truly versatile.
