The People’s Tower by Olivier Grossetête

20 July - 21 July
Organized by: City of London Corporation
Guildhall Yard
Gresham St

Taking inspiration from Guildhall and the City, artist Olivier Grossetête will create a monumental construction entirely from cardboard. He won’t be doing this alone.

Join Olivier on 20 July to assemble this soaring feat of human achievement using only muscle power. The final structure is both a reflection on the image and symbolism of architecture, which explores urban spaces, and a social and political project which allows us to question it, together. The end is a moment of festivity and joy as the structure is pulled down the next day.
