Brutalism meets Bedouin at Frank’s Café and Campari Bar, the latest output from the clan that brought us Angel of the North and Blind Light
Twenty-one-year-old Cambridge architecture graduate Paloma – daughter of Antony Gormley – and her friend Lettice designed and built the temporary structure on the rooftop of a multi-storey car park in Peckham, London.
Made from used scaffolding, PVC tarpaulin and ratchet straps, the eatery benefits from commanding views of the cityscape, vibrant inhabitants, and occasional sonic sculptures to boot. Paloma, who was plucked from obscurity by commercial gallery owner Hannah Barry, reminisces of a ‘girl-heavy construction team’ given unbridled access to her family’s ageing Volvo. Astragal recommends the grilled ox heart (£3.50) washed down with a ‘Byceclete’ (£4.00), a cocktail of Campari and wine.
