Description"An art-work by David Hamilton in 1985. The brick and tile structure conceals a ventilation shaft for the Metro system. The ceramic relief marks the achievements of Sir Charles Algernon Parsons (1854-1931), the designer of Turbinia, a steam turbine powered yacht. The designs pressed into the clay are based on Parson's engineering drawings.
