James Horrobin & SOM: Promenade Railings
1992 | steel | Mackenzie Walk dockside perimeter (exterior) | Art Map reference: 26
A master craftsman in architectural and domestic forged ironwork, James Horrobin worked with architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) to design two sets of railings for Canary Wharf. The Promenade Railings along the entire perimeter of the docks were designed with a gentle sweeping bow, echoing sails on a sailing boat.
Horrobin has created a wide diversity of works, encompassing architectural, ecclesiastic, domestic and sculptural pieces.
