Cyclus at Broadgate

As the world’s top cyclists race through the City of London to the finish line on The Mall, Broadgate will be hosting its very own peloton for the day while all the Tour de France action is shown on the big screen.

On Monday 7 July, Cyclus, a piece of art by the late Vasko Lipovac will make its own special journey from Croatia to Exchange Square, home of Broadgate's Summer of Sport season. For one day only, you can take a closer look at this monumental sculptural artwork out in the open air before it takes a temporary residence in the reception lobby of 201 Bishopsgate.

This stunning piece made of individual cyclists, each with a different colour, will create the perfect atmosphere for celebrating the end of the UK leg of the Tour de France. Take some time to admire Cyclus in your lunch break while you catch up on the day’s cycling progress on the big screen. 

Vasko Lipovac, a Croatian painter, sculptor and printmaker was heavily influenced by Croatia’s rich culture, modelling imaginative figures with various materials. He received numerous awards for sculpture, illustrations and public monuments, as well as a lifetime achievement award shortly before he passed away in 2006. Lipovac held his first public exhibition in York in 1959 and now his sons are delighted to bring his work back to England once more.
