Blueprint Magazine September 2008, Experimental Architecture.




London appears to embrace ‘Architecture’ and ‘Design’ more readily year on year. Sections of the city are occasionally transformed from their regular appearance into showcases for fascinating geometric structures challenging the environment and it’s occupants to interact.

The ‘British Pavillion’ has certainly evolved, here we have two examples from Bedford Square, in the historic district Bloomsbury. Hot off the drawing board these are surprisingly effective and well considered examples of recent work from the Architectural Association. The ‘Swoosh Pavilion’ designed by 12 second and third-year students is 60M wide and wraps around a wrought iron Georgian lamp-post. The [C] Pavilion was designed by two alumini of the AA’s Design research Laboratory, Alan Dempsey and Alvin Huang, project co-ordinated by Patrik Schumacher and Yusuke Obuchi.
