Neba Sere presents the sixth episode of AF turns 30, a new weekly series by the Architecture Foundation, looking back at the last 30 years of architectural history.

The refurbishment of Green Park Underground Station, completed as part of TfL's Olympic Games investment strategy, introduced a new street canopy featuring artwork by John Maine RA within the Portland stone cladding. The historic station was made fully accessible for the first time, with step-free access to all three lines through new lifts and a new ramp from the ticket hall into the park. Elsie Owusu OBE, in collaboration with Feilden+Mawson, led the masterplan for the area and the redesign of the station, relocating the Diana fountain from its original site in the centre of the park to form the centrepiece of the new entrance. Neba Sere talks to Elsie Owusu OBE about her reflections on the scheme 10 years on.

Neba Sere is a Senior Project Officer at the Greater London Authority, and is co-founder of Black Females in Architecture. She has led design & construction projects with young people at Build Up Foundation, and was formally one of six young trustees of the Architecture Foundation.
