Quay2c shows off 'recycled' pop-up gallery in Pimlico
These are first images of the summer pop-up gallery on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground at Chelsea College of Art and Design
The ‘Double Negative’ installation led by the college’s Spatial Design Course director Ken Wilder opposite Tate Britain has been designed by Quay2c Architects and is made almost exclusively with recycled materials. Just 2.4m x 2.4m the building cost just £2,500 to build, starting on site on Monday 11 July and completing on 20 July 2011.
The pavilion and 4x m2 gallery has been constructed by Peckham-based Quay2c with students from the MA Interior & Spatial Design course at Chelsea College of Art & Design (CCAD) with course director and artist Ken Wilder.
From 2 September, four post-graduate students from CCAD will be showcasing their work in the pavilion to coincide with the opening of the MA shows. The 2 September show also coincides with Tate Britain’s first Friday late night opening.
The pavilion is also participating in London’s Open House Architecture weekend on 17-18 September.
