Neu Architects and Seán & Stephen has completed this installation for the Sherlock Holmes exhibition at the Museum of London
The installation features brightly coloured doorway structures, each representing the detective’s famous doorway at 221B Baker Street.
Cryptic symbols and motifs within the installation’s floors and walls contain hidden clues about a theme, character or object from different Sherlock Holmes stories.
Located within the museum’s foyer, the installation will be changed throughout the exhibition, with the doorways able to be clustered together or rearranged in a long line.
The installation, entitled Mind Maze, coincides with the Museum of London’s major exhibition ‘Sherlock Holmes - The Man Who Never Lived And Will Never Die’which is on until 12 April.
David Spence, director of Transformation at the Museum of London, said: ‘The Mind Maze is a playful and enigmatic introduction to the Sherlock Holmes season at the museum. The curious structures have piqued the interest of visitors of all ages, offering a suitably Holmesian experience, with their faithful interpretation of the stories and the cryptic clues within.’
