These Lovely Illuminated Arches Are Now Lighting Up Granary Square

Space Frames

Space Frames are lighting up these dark January lights.

The Christmas light displays may have ended, but if anything, January is look even brighter than December. We’ve already got Canary Wharf’s mesmerising Winter Lights festival, the free illuminations at Battersea Power Station, and soon, the colourful lanterns of Lightopia. Not wanting to miss out on the fun, Granary Square is now glowing with a playful installation called Space Frames.

A series of bright white arches which draw visitors into the heart of the square, Space Frames has been created by Studio Mieke Meijer. The installation previously appeared in nearby Coal Drops Yard, so it’s not the first time they’ve been employed to add a little illumination to our British winters.

Space Frames

Space Frames are designed to echo the industrial features of the area, mimicking the metal and brickwork which so marks this part of town. They’re also rather sustainable, as each piece can be taken apart and put back together easily. Visitors are encouraged to sit beneath the arches or wander through, with the option of a photoshoot very much on the table too. Handily, Space Frames are entirely free to visit, and since they’re sticking around until March 31st, you’ll be able to enjoy them until the clocks go forward and our evenings start getting a little more pleasant…

Fancy some indoor art instead? Our massive 2020 art exhibitions guide should do the trick!
