Agora on the Green 

Agora on the Green by Russ + Henshaw

Coloured felt hammocks hang from wooden beams in this interactive installation by HASSELL, Draisci Studio and Sto Werkstatt, exploring the architectural spaces needed for physical and mental rest.

Hosting an exhibition of the practice’s industrial design work, Grimshaw’s pavilion is built from a super light-weight modular canopy system.

Wordplay by Monotype, Manou Bendon and Jan Mohammed

International type house Monotype has created this outdoor exhibition which mixes type with wood, vinyl, mirror, metal, concrete and light to create seven giant words in seven typefaces throughout Clerkenwell.
