A very unusual sculpture Fai, what is it supposed to represent? Sam
An interesting piece of arithmetic work.
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
Thanks! You too Sam, a little windy for photos...
Great for drying the mountain load of washing I have though :)
Haha, a very timely reminder for me Sam.
That looks funny, but nice picture!
Cheers Thomas! Best wishes from London, Fai
Fai, this morning I saw the photograph but I did not have time to comment .. I knew something like .. and I did not know what!..... Now I know! .. the bottom of a mushroom, those blades! ??? Simona
I think you're right Simona, never thought of that! Fai
Very striking, it reminds me of a hedgehog!
Haha Paula, yes, or an armadillo :) Fai
Or a porcupine!!
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
Very good shot, and wonderful Pavilion :-) Cheers Eva
