The large-scale installation, called ‘Please Be Seated’, fuses innovation and technology and is the most ambitious of British Land’s commissions to date. Responding to the changing rhythm of the community, its design features curves for people to sit on and walk under, further enhancing London's largest pedestrianised neighbourhood. Made from scaffolding planks, Paul Cocksedge is collaborating with Essex-based flooring company, White&White, to re-imagine and re-use the building wood.
The installation that will rise at the Broadgate site responds to the changing rhythm of people travelling through the square every day. It's both practical and playful, transforming the experience of the area.
It will be in Finsbury Avenue Square in Broadgate during London Design Festival in September 2019.
