A cutely named installation near Liverpool Street, and not a reference to Linda McCartney.

Artist Stephen Vitiello has installed this geodesic dome structure over the Broadgate Arena (the bit that has ice skating in winter). What’s it do? In the words of the accompanying leaflet it’s: ‘A multi-channel sound installation that juxtaposes the beating of moth wings…with the buzzing of humming birds…to create a richly textured environmental experience’.

To be honest, it’s just the Rainforest Café with more suits and fewer naff animatronics. But worth dipping into if you’re passing through Broadgate today.

Thanks to Ham for the tip-off.
