LONDON SKY PAVILION
LONDON UNITED KINGDOM
Location: London, United Kingdom
Mission: Public installation
Area: 200 m²
Budget: 50 000 Euros
Project Type: International competition
This proposal aims to reinterpret one of the first manmade monument built to observe and admire the movements in the sky: Stonehenge.
In our everyday lives, it is possible to pass it without any appreciation or even acknowledgement of the complex and beautiful movement of natural elements around us. This pavilion invites the visitor to slow down and to trace similar physical and spiritual paths to their ancestors, with openings oriented towards significant solar and lunar events as they did at Stonehenge. Whist in the pavilion, the vertical elements draw visitor’s attention upwards towards the sky and then when the path opens, up it brings their eye towards the horizon, drawing their attention to an event in the earth cycle.
