We are delighted to announce the opening of Henge at Wren Landing, Canary Wharf. The new temporary installation offers a magical space to take a break from the hectic rhythm of urban life and reconnect to our community - past, present, and future.
Inspired by the more than 1,300 prehistoric stone circles and monuments that are scattered across Britain, Ireland and Brittany, Henge is a participatory sculptural form that invites those who work, live, and visit the area to engage with it creatively, by using it as a space for contemplation and reflection as well as an inclusive civic arena for performances, music, poetry readings, etc.
Click here to learn more about Henge and here to listen to Principal Director Alan Stanton discuss the ideas behind the pavilion with Monocle.
Henge is free to visit until Thursday 20th October. It is an LSI Stone, Stanton Williams and Webb Yates Engineers initiative in collaboration with experimentadesign and the London Design Festival, and with support from SEAM Design and Light Projects.
