Stephen Perrin designed the Institute of Ancient Languages in Bayswater, London, in his second year at London South Bank University. It comprises a 5 x 3 array of interconnected cores, each one being a representation of the Tower of Babel. Each tower rotates either clockwise or anti-clockwise and allows movement in the three Cartesian coordinates. In plan, the grid is a mapping of the globe, so each core represents a zone of the planet. The cores and the shelves that encase them are designed to hold the records and artefacts of that geographic area.
