Pipe Dreams

Deep beneath the Barbican, the Crossrail tunnel nears completion…

Tunnelling their way from Liverpool Street to Farringdon, the 1,000 tonne boring machines Elizabeth and Victoria passed beneath the Barbican Estate, completing the final stretch of the Crossrail tunnelling project.

Granted unique access, we ventured down into the tunnels to explore this fascinating underground landscape and discover what is being created underneath our feet in our short film, Pipe Dreams. Capturing the strange magic of this untouched and otherworldly labyrinth that lies beneath our busy streets, Pipe Dreams brings the tunnels to life with animation by Daniela Sherer and an atmospheric electronic soundtrack by LoneLady.
