London’s Garden Bridge

Joanna Lumley with a model of Thomas Heatherwick’s Garden Bridge — a living bridge across the Thames has been her obsession since 1998.

Sometimes, this job doesn’t feel like work. Who wouldn’t want to sit in designer Thomas Heatherwick’s magical King’s Cross Studio, talking to Joanna Lumley about the new Garden Bridge that will span the Thames from Temple to the South Bank by 2018?

The shapely, two-pier, £150 million structure will be designed by Heatherwick, the man behind the 2012 Olympic cauldron and the new Routemaster bus, while the wild and variegated vegetation will be chosen by gardener Dan Pearson.
