The Sunken Garden in Horniman Gardens
This six-colour seasonal planting scheme is in the 1930s built Sunken Garden in Horniman Gardens. The formal block planting design was based on Lego bricks. Lego was founded in 1932, the same year as the Sunken Garden was built. At this time the Horniman Museum at Forest Hill had an exhibition of wonders from around the world including an Egyptian pyramid and the Great Barrier Reef using 500,000 Lego bricks.
