Bruno Taut's glass pavilion, a Stadtkrone.

is a housing estate south of the river Thames, created by the German-born architect Erik Stromberg. The pièce de résistance of the estate was Skygarden Tower. A Stadtkrone was placed at the very top of the tower.[1] Peter Grant called the estate a "poem in concrete and deprivation".[2] In the park surrounding the Tower lived a wood nymph called Sky.[3]

The entire tower was blown up by the Faceless Man.[4]

Rumours surrounding Skygarden Tower Edit

There were rumours about Skygarden Tower. One is that the residents of the tower never did anything halfhearted. They never settle for anything second-rate, the proof being the professional success of several of the previous tenants. Another rumour (heard by Louise Talacre), said that a group of tree-worshipping New Age druids squatted in one of the blocks.[5]
