Find Andrew Burton's Chimney

Rising unexpectedly from the grass around Westferry Circus, Andrew Burton's Chimney is part of a series of brickworks inspired by the artist's travels in India and brought to the Canary Wharf area in 2008.

Burton uses miniature clay bricks, and collaborated with artists in India, Korea and the Netherlands in order to produce the pieces, and Chimney is said to echo not only the temples, palaces and brick works he visited, but also western factory chimneys, the minarets of the Taj Mahal and India’s tallest brick minaret at the Qutub Minar near Delhi.

  1. Canary Wharf always brings you some surprise. Can't wait to have a walk around once again...
