Orchestra of Bird Song Opens at Canary Wharf – 07.07.22

  • Crossrail Place Roof Garden will provide an oasis of calm through the harmonious sounds of birdsong
  • The Sound exhibit is the work of Netherland’s based artist Jelle Mastenbroek
  • Free to visit exhibit is open until 20 August 2022

Canary Wharf is hosting a new free to visit sound exhibition at Crossrail Place Roof Garden this summer until August 20th. Visitors to the garden can take in the wonder of an orchestra of bird song at “The Robin Who Wondered if he was a Nightingale” by Netherland’s based artist Jelle Mastenbroek.

Bringing the Crossrail Place Roof Garden to life, nestled in between thoughtfully planted beds and trees, a series of machines will replicate the percussive rhythms of Woodpeckers, the tuneful notes of Cuckoos and the whistles of Nightingales throughout the roof garden to bring an oasis of calm in the heart of Canary Wharf.

Canary Wharf is home to a vast and rapidly growing collection of artworks including a number of exhibitions in addition to London’s largest collection of public outdoor art which features over 100 works available to view for free around the estate. From Helaine Blumenfeld’s ‘Looking Up’ sculpture exhibition to Camille Walala’s ‘Captivated by Colour’ artwork which reimagines the Adams Plaza Bridge with enchanting geometric shapes and every aspect of the colour wheel.  For little ones, the Children’s Art Trail features 12 pieces of art chosen to inspire young minds, plus a handy map to show where to find them.

With hundreds of cafés, bars and restaurants, Canary Wharf offers plenty of options to choose from whether visitors want to grab an iced coffee as they make their way around or book in for a cocktail once the sun starts to set, while new restaurant openings include Hawksmoor Wood Wharf, Caravan, Seoul Bird, Marugame Udon, Gallio and Six by Nico.
