Coal Drops Yard: Space FramesA special festive light installation brightens winter nights at Coal Drops Yard, the new Heatherwick Studio-designed shopping district in King's Cross. The giant sculptural lights which respond to the industrial structures of their location form Spaces Frames, an installation in and around Coal Drops Yard and Granary Square, in situ from 6th November 2018 until 6th January 2019. The light boxes, shaped into archways, circles, semi-circles, ovals and straight lines, act as beacons, drawing visitors towards and beneath them. Designed by Studio Mieke Meijer, the domestic version of the Space Frames can be seen at - and commissioned from - MDR Gallery on Lower Stable Street, Coal Drops Yard.
