See William Pye's Curlicue

Standing on the Southern bank of the Thames in Helsinki Square, near Greenland Dock, Curlicue is a tubular steel construction, designed by William Pye and put in place in 1989 by the London Docklands Development Corporation.

The piece was plas part of the Greenland Passage development, and is a modified and enlarged version of a previous Pye work from the 1970s. By 1989, we are told, Pye had largely moved into working with more natural materials such as water and stone.
