Summer of Design in Wembley Park
JUNE - SEPTEMBER
Flight – a major new commission by London-based street artist Remi Rough – to celebrate the commencement of its summer cultural programme, Summer of Play. Known for his dramatic and colourful abstract compositions that have transformed buildings and locations around the world, Rough was inspired by the Wembley Park site’s flow of people in devising the concept for Flight.
So Last Century – one of London’s most respected vintage markets – heads north of the river for the first time.
