Leicester Square

In London, in September, we went to TKTS at Leicester Square to buy discounted theater tickets.*

While there, I really admired this sinuous bench/hedge/fence combination, which enclosed the central garden areas of the square — particularly the use of highly polished steel for the railings.

The square was recently re-designed by Burns+Nice, with the installation completed in May of this year.

*We saw “Yes, Prime Minister,” which probably ought to have remained a half-hour sitcom, but was a lot of fun nevertheless.
