The People's Tower

Circulate worked with renowned French artist, Olivier Grossetete, bringing The People’s Tower to outer London across the summer. Five unique, temporary towers were created by over 1000 local people in workshops at each of the Circulate venues, constructed using nothing more than people power, tape and cardboard boxes galore! The towers were unique to each venue, drawing on local architecture in some locations, in others designed by community inspirations such as Musgum huts and Gaudi’s Batllo house in Barcelona. Despite their differences, the towers were a monumental display of community effort, each growing to at least 21m before being ceremoniously demolished.
