How About Studio has built three pop-ups at the Southbank Centre as part of its annual Festival of Love
The East London-based architecture and design firm was commissioned by the arts venue to build structures that would be located around the site.
Just You and Me
Just You and Me by How About Studio
This installation was the result of the Southbank Centre’s nationwide Design Challenge in which Jonathan Kennedy Enyim-Otebil, a 17-year-old art and design student from Barking and Dagenham College was selected.
The art student then worked with How About Studio to realise the designs for the installation which takes its inspiration from an image of two polar bears and is designed to evoke ideas of love and sustainability.
Mobile Shop by How About Studio
This ceramic tile-clad portable shop features a structure which unfolds to respond to the transformation of the Southbank terrace during the festival.
Echoing Arches by How About Studio
Located under Hungerford Bridge, this processional walkway uses scaffold poles and boards to create a series of arches which echo the shapes created from the brickwork of Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s bridge.
The three installations will be on display until 18 September.
