London Design Festival celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world.
Teamed up with Stanton Williams and LSI Stone, Webb Yates Engineers will work in collaboration with experimentadesign to realise Henge, a project in Greenwich Peninsula inspired by the Neolithic stone structures that "create a space separate from the outside world". The circular form will create a focused gathering space with a clear identity.
Described as a “participatory sculptural form”, the new installation is set to create a gathering space for visitors with additional music and sound design during this year’s edition of London Design Festival. The installation will also encourage spontaneous performances, music and poetry readings within and around the structure.
The pavilion itself will be made of 150-million-year-old Jurassic limestone and marble, a zero carbon, recyclable material. Light will accentuate the form and play against its rich, textured surfaces.
London Design Festival takes place across the capital from 17-25 September. For more information about the events, exhibitions and installations, please visit LDF’s website.
