Jurassic joy as practice’s Crystal Palace Park project takes step forward
A community-led project to reconnect visitors to a south London park with its historic grade I-listed dinosaurs via a bridge designed by Tonkin Liu has hit a key funding milestone.
Crystal Palace Park’s 30-plus dinosaur sculptures were installed in the mid-1850s after Joseph Paxton’s Crystal Palace had been relocated to the site from Hyde Park, following the Great Exhibition of 1851.
The dinosaurs’ artificial island home is currently only accessible by a temporary bridge that is only in place for a few days every year and which limits the number of visitors who can see the dinosaurs close up.
