    Can you imagine if they replaced that giant tree composed of many other trees in Rockefeller center with something a little more sustainable? London’s got the right idea.

    Sarah Wigglesworth Architects has been commissioned by developers igloo to create a bespoke Christmas tree for Bermondsey Square, London, SE1. The Bermondsey Square Christmas tree is composed of 35 recycled bike wheels, set on a simple structure, in the recognisable shape of a Christmas Tree.
