London Festival of Architecture

St Paul’s Plinth 2019

For the second year running, together with Cheapside Business Alliance, LFA launched a competition for the imaginative re-use of the ‘St Paul’s Plinth’, which was first created by Scott Whitby Studio and Arup for the LFA in 2018. Lunch Break– an installation of 40 gilded angels resting on swings outside St Paul’s Cathedral – was unveiled as part of the LFA on 5 June. The design by creative architecture studio KHBT in collaboration with artist Ottmar Hörl, suspended angels high above passers-by on randomly arranged bars. The project celebrated what can happen at the creative boundary of art and architecture, as well as providing a charming and eye-catching temporary landmark for the City of London. The piece created a strong conceptual and visual link to St Paul’s Cathedral, and the golden cross on top of the dome in particular. The rich interior and ornamental nature of the Cathedral was reflected by the intricate detail of each sculpted angel.
