UEL students unwrap NLA pavilion
Architecture students from the University of East London (UEL) have completed this pavilion outside the Building Centre, on Store Street, London
The timber structure is the centrepiece of New London Architecture’s Fit London exhibition.
The temporary ‘geometric’ building, which will be on display until 25 July, is connected by live video-streaming to another installation built by the UEL students in the Ducal Palace, St Marks Square.
Wilson Lam, Fourth year UEL student and project leader, said: ‘This is a once in a life-time opportunity for a student, or even a professional. Creating live structural projects, with such freedom, are rare in the industry and we have now built one in London and Venice. We are still amazed at the opportunity of being able to build at the Loggia of Ducal Palace – you can’t place anything in there unless you’re Michelangelo.’
