At 12m tall, you can't really miss Laurie Chetwood's unusual owering maypole on Clerkenwell Green. Even if you wanted to. Chetwood describes his London Oasis installation as a 'kinetic structure which mimics the design of a growing plant'. The structure also 'opens and closes with the sun and the moon.' Others have said the London Biennale project looks more like 'the strange key thing the hairy dwarf carried around in that terrible 1980s He-Man movie'. But, love it or loathe it, it seems we have not seen the last of Chetwood's unusual 'temporary' installation.

Astragal's spies have learned that a number of London boroughs have already approached the architect because they want their own Oasis. And apparently they could get their hands on one for just £100,000. A blooming bargain.
