Architects Tonkin Liu have designed this temporary pavilion to house discussions during the London Festival of Architecture. Tonkin Liu’s ‘Fresh Flower’ comprises 11 petals that rise off the ground, arching around a central stalk to create a space within which a moveable stage rotates. LED lights rising from the stalk will illuminate the pavilion. It will be constructed entirely from Corus products including tube and sheet steel. When erected the floor area of the structure will cover 97m2, with the petals ranging from 2.7 to 4.3 metres high.
The London Festival of Architecture is at venues across London from 20 June - 20 July.
