‘power’ Entrance Artwork Coming to Grosvenor Arch

Grosvenor Arch will soon be enhanced by specially-commissioned artwork framing the entrance from Sopwith Way, entitled ‘Power’. ‘Power’ is inspired by the Art Deco themes found in the original Power Station. It is executed in hand-painted marine ply by multi-disciplinary designer Morag Myerscough.

Myerscough is well known for such previous commissions as the Movement Café which welcomed visitors to the Olympic borough of Greenwich in 2012 and for designing the British pavilion at the 2004 Venice Biennale. Her wayfinding work can be seen at the Barbican and the new Tate Modern extension, and among her many awards is the Design Museum’s Design Of The Year.

Timber panels and tiles which will form part of the work are on site already. Scaffolding needed for its completion will be in place on 19 and 20 June, during which time access through Grosvenor Arch will be partly restricted. Works will continue until completion on 3 July. Hours of work will be 8am-6pm Monday to Friday and 8am-1pm on Saturday.

Planning permission is in place for ‘Power’ to remain at Grosvenor Arch for a maximum of 5 years.
