The Rosebank Arcade

A transformation of Waltham Forest’s busiest pedestrian thoroughfare. The Rosebank arcade is a large scale wall and floor installation in Waltham Forest.

Commissioned by the London Borough of Waltham Forest, the piece acts as an enormous welcome mat for new visitors and daily commuters alike,  compressing the excitement of the borough into a tunnel of colour, pattern and energy.

With large arches and a 20 metre long floor pattern, the piece is architectural in scale - considered as a fragment of a grand civic arcade, maybe the remnants of a building once here, maybe the start of a building to come.
