Price & Myers reveals 'Hy-Pavilion' plans for LFA
[FIRST LOOK] The London Festival of Architecture (LFA) will display a temporary pavilion designed by Price & Myers with landscaping from Moxon Architects
Price & Myers, consultant structural engineers based in London, created the ‘Hy-Pavilion’ by arranging a pair of intersecting hyperbolic paraboloids at 90 degrees to one another to form a triangulated structure, featuring a 360-degree stage and space to host theatre or conference events.
It will be erected near to the Royal Institute of British Architecture’s headquarters in Park Crescent, London, in time for the start of the festival - an Arts Council England event sponsored in conjunction with London Development Agency and Land Securities. It runs from June 19 to July 4, 2010.
Moxon Architects, Finnforest, m-tec, Commercial Systems International and Millimetre collaborated to create the pavilion.
