In pictures: Covent Garden Piazza has been covered in mirrors

Isabelle Aron

Cameras at the ready, London, because there's a swanky new installation in Covent Garden and it won't be long until it takes up residence in your various social feeds. 'Reflect London' has covered 32,000 square feet of Covent Garden's market building with 67 mirrors at different angles, which will move over time.

But what's actually going on here? Is it some kind of deep and meaningful public art installation? Er, not exactly. It's basically a shiny distraction from the fact that they're working on turning part of the Grade II-listed building into a new Sushisamba restaurant. So, yes it's essentially a glorified building site hoarding, but still – it'll look damn good with a lo-fi filter on it.

Check out some more exclusive pictures of the installation.

In other news, work has officially started on the ArcelorMittal Orbit slide.

And there's a crowdfunding campaign to reopen the secret Crystal Palace Subway.
