For London Festival of Architecture's 'Texture in London' project, LFA asked some of their friends and partners to tell them about their favourite textures in London and record a short video explaining the reasons for their nomination.

Marcie Larizadeh, Associate Director at Squire & Partners, specialises in bespoke and crafted projects in London and internationally. For her nomination, Marcie selected Tiling, as it appears within the London Underground.

"For Londoners, the tube is a central part of our life in the city, and an integral part of our visual and sensual experience of the tube is the tiling. Tiling is a material that unifies the complex structures and routes, and provides human scale and grade to an environment that at times can feel frenetic and vast. It is a robust, humble and affordable material that can absorb the messiness of advertising, services and structure; it can inform and direct; and it can enhance the life of staff and commuters as they pass through on their journeys." - Marc
