Visitors to Poplar Riverside will notice a major new artwork adorning a bridge over the River Lea at Cody Dock.
The new artwork is part of The Line's latest exhibition, Madge Gill: Nature in Mind, which celebrates the artist who lived and worked in Newham from 1920 to 1961. The artwork is a section of Gill's drawing, with free-flowing leaves, petals, abstract forms and spider webs filling the work.
Poplar Riverside is located close to many of The Line's major outdoor art installations, which offer a journey through a dynamic urban landscape. The route runs between Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and The O2, following the waterways and the line of the Greenwich Meridian.
St William's new neighbourhood is set to create 2,800 new homes for Tower Hamlets, set amongst 10 acres of public open space, including a 2.5-acre riverside park. A school, community space, crèche and shops will all feature in the new riverside community, with the first phase of homes now available.
