OSA to build installation at Leeds International Pool

  • Comment
German maverick Office for Subversive Architecture (OSA) has been chosen to build this temporary art installation inside Leeds’ soon-to-be-demolished International Pool.

Dubbed The Accumulator, the huge textile funnel is expected to be erected within the next few days, and will stay on display until the 1967 pool is flattened to make way for Make’s long-awaited Spiracle tower in April.

However, the news comes amid reports that the deal to sell off the now-empty building – originally designed by disgraced architect John Poulson – has yet to be finalised.
