Grace Teo will need to approve that you worked on “THE VIADUCTS” before we add you as a collaborator.

THE VIADUCTS

The London and Greenwich Railway (L&GR) opened between 1836 and 1838. It was the first steam railway in the capital and built specifically for passengers, over an entirely elevated track with about 878 brick arches. These viaducts were the initial idea of the Royal Engineer, Colonel George Thomas Landmann to fully utilise these spaces for workshops and housings. Today, this scene continues to provide a unique landscape in London.
The outcome of the project is an interactive piece that observes the human activities in the span of 24 hours from the designer's perspective of both termini — the Spa Road Station and London Bridge Station — through a View-master.
