Hall Mcknight has revealed plans for a pop-up pavilion to showcase Irish design at next month’s London Festival of Architecture
The temporary structure, which will sit in Kings Cross’ Cubitt Park throughout June, is made from a kit of pieces cut from boards and assembled in units.
According to the practice, the project ‘explores how the phenomenon of the city is assembled from individual pieces’.
Inside it will feature an installation of bricks reclaimed from a terraced street in Belfast.
Hall McKnight’s structure will be installed alongside a red pavilion by TAKA, Clancy Moore Architects and Steve Larkin Architects, which ‘explores architecture’s role as a background to the activities it contains and bounds’.
The pavilions form part of a year-long international celebration of Irish design named New Horizon_architecture from Ireland which features work by TAKA, Clancy Moore, Hall McKnight, Steve Larkin, GKMP, A2, Ryan Kennihan, AP+E, Urban Agency and Emmett Scanlon.
