Elysian Arcs at The Leadenhall Building

February 26 @ 10:00 am - 8:00 pm

Giant 20ft-high, rainbow-coloured arcs will premiere at The Leadenhall Building in the City of London, bringing joy to some of the darker months of the year. Elysian Arcs is a free outdoor immersive light and sound installation created by award-winning design studio, Atelier Sisu. The Arcs have been commissioned by the Eastern City Business Improvement District (EC BID) and produced by FESTIVAL.ORG to help support the mental, physical and environmental wellbeing of workers in the City and across London, as part of the BID’s year-long RECHARGE 2024 campaign.

Making their debut on Monday, 26th February, Elysian Arcs will be situated at the foot of the iconic Leadenhall Building, affectionately known as The Cheesegrater. The installation will be open for all to experience from 10am-8pm daily until Friday 15th March.

The collection of ethereal arcs will be a striking contrast to the surrounding City architecture and will become even more impressive at dusk with internal lights bringing them to life. The ‘art-chitectural’ sculptures are made from a colour-reflecting dichroic film that reacts to changes in light, causing a rainbow of reflections and a unique picture from every angle. Elysian Arcs will also emit an ambient soundtrack, inviting people to move around and underneath the arcs, immersing themselves in this bubble-like environment.

Sydney-based design studio, Atelier Sisu, is led by the award-winning artists Renzo B. Larriviere and Zara Pasfield who work within the intersection of art and architecture creating large-scale site-specific works that enchant by reinventing spaces.
