First look: AA summer pavilion
This year’s Architectural Association (AA) summer pavilion in Bedford Square, London, is unveiled tomorrow (3 July).
The competition-winning installation, Driftwood, comprises 28 layers of plywood and was conceived by 3rd year AA student Danecia Sibingo.
The sculpture was fabricated at Hooke Park, the AA’s 350-acre campus and workshop in West Dorset where the 2006 winning Fractal pavilion is permanently installed.
Sibingo was helped by a team that includes Lyn Hayek, Yoojin Kim, and Taeyoung Lee on the pavilion which was, according to the school, takes its inspiration from the sea.
