Colourful Steps Bring Vibrancy To Wembley Park

A flight of steps in Wembley Park has been drenched in vivid colours. It's in honour of the area's cultural programme — Summer of Play — which begins, as the name suggests, this summer.

The design — fittingly titled Flight — comes from popular street artist Remi Rough, who trades in colourful geometric shapes. The set of stairs connects London Designer Outlet and the rest of Wembley Park, to Wembley's most recognisable attraction, its stadium.

It's fitting that the installation bridges these two areas, as Summer of Play is all about showing the public that there's more to Wembley than just football. The image above includes some of the varied performers taking part in the programme.

Here's what Rough had to say about the installation:

Wembley Park is an exciting place undergoing huge transformation. You quickly get a sense of it being a very dynamic and creative place, and I wanted this work to reflect and enhance this.

I wanted Flight to be a containment of movement so that people can enjoy the experience simply by being within the installation, but not feel the need to only look at it in its entirety.

The installation is essentially there to move around, upon and within; even in its static state it's constantly moving. It seems a very appropriate way to begin a summer of activity at Wembley Park!
