The Optic Cloak, by Conrad Shawcross


Artist Conrad Shawcross has created a new architectural installation in London, in collaboration with architectural practice CF Møller Architects.

The Optic Cloak is 49 metres high by 20 metres wide, and is made of aluminium cladding with perforated, triangular panels.

The Panels fold across the surface of the tower, which forms geometric patterns, to create the image of an uneven sculpted surface.

The installation is part of an urban regeneration project which will turn London’s Greenwich Peninsula into a neighbourhood including 15,000 new homes and a film studio.

The Optic Cloak will be revealed tomorrow 21 September.
