Hi Sam, I initially thought it was a bikeshed lol. It's actually the winner of some design competition.

http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/952955 says: _The DRL Ten Pavilion is the winning entry in a competition run by the Design Research lab (the graduate design programme of the Architectural Association). The competition celebrated the tenth anniversary of the programme. The competition brief was to design a pavilion using 13mm thick fibre-reinforced concrete panels, which are normally used as cladding. In the competition required the panels to be used to create the structure. From a distance the pavilion looks solid, but closer photos show that this is not the case. _

Thanks a lot Sonja and Finn,

Best wishes, Fai

:)) I agree it does look like a bikeshed Fai!! I dont think the artist that designed it would be too pleased to hear that though! Thanks for the info! Have a good day. Sam

Hehe, this is so controversial Paula :) I think someone needs to start a petition to make it the Olympic mascot for 2012 :)

Perhaps they could call it The Hollow Gesture!!!

LOL, that would be cool Paula, and we could build the London Olympic Stadium to this shape to give the Bird's nest a run for its money
