The experience

Visitors will climb to the 22.5-metre peak via a path that winds its way up to the summit. When reaching the top, a viewing deck will offer views never seen before by the wider public. On their way down, visitors will descend into the heart of the Mound, where visitors can experience Lightfield- a one-off light exhibition by W1 Curates. The exit leads visitors to Marble Arch and the adjacent public space leading to Oxford Street and Hyde Park. The Marble Arch Mound will be open to visitors until 9 January 2022. Don’t miss out, tickets are available on the door or can be booked in advance.

Lightfield at the Mound

The Marble Arch Mound will feature a one-off light exhibition by W1 Curates.

This unique collaboration between Westminster City Council and W1 Curates will offer the opportunity to enjoy a special art exhibition called Lightfield, led by British/American artist, Anthony James.

Lightfield consists of cubes, connected via ethernet cables, which will simulate the interconnected root structure of a birch tree forest.

The cubes all communicate with one another creating a large canvas for light to dance around, which will allow the light to follow visitors as they walk through Lightfield.
