Inside The Skyscraper Forest Of Canary Wharf
The Traffic Light Tree is a sculpture by French artist Pierre Vivant. It originally sat on a roundabout closer to Canary Wharf but was moved in 2014 to this location outside Billingsgate Market. Photo: Kenny McCartney

Canary Wharf is the nickname usually given to the pyramid-topped tower which is more correctly called One Canada Square. Canary Wharf is, of course, the name of the whole area, which in recent decades has grown from one solitary skyscraper to a whole forest of them. Take a look:

If you look closely at this artwork, Six Public Clocks, you'll see that each clock face has a different number on (each clock is double-sided). Photo: Andy Worthington
