Covent Garden’s main Market Building has been covered up, with 32,000 square feet of mirrors. It’s not art – exactly, but a hoarding that has been put over scaffolding while the stone facade is given a restoration.

Reflect London at Covent Garden

Rather than just covering it in green netting, or putting up some graphic design, as buildings are increasingly inclined to do — they covered the whole thing in mirrors.

In total, 67 huge mirrors have been used, and the angles of which will be adjusted as time passes creating new viewpoints and perspectives of Covent Garden through the seasons.

‘Reflect London’ was created by the specialist design agency Sculptivate and will be in place for around eight months – aka, until around the end of this year.

This website has been running now for over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, it doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.

It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.

Whether it's a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.

If you like what you read on here, then please support the website here.

Thank you
