driftwooddriftwood AA Summer Pavilion

今日偶然通りかかって発見した、AAスクールArchitectural Association School of Architecture)の第4回サマー・パビリオンの「Driftwood(流木)」。トッテナムコートロード(Tottenham Court Road)から少し入ったところにあるBedford Squareに、7月3日から設置されている。AAスクールは、ザハ・ハディッドレム・コールハースを輩出した名門建築学校。28層のplywood(合板)からなる「Driftwood」は、AAスクールの生徒、Danecia Sibingoと3人のチームメンバー(Lyn Hayek、Yoojin Kim、Taeyoung Lee)が、ヨルダンの世界遺産遺跡ペトラに影響を受けて、7週間かけて作り上げた力作だ。「流木」という名の通り、流れるようなラインがとても美しく、見ていて何だか癒される。ジョージアン様式の建築に囲まれた静かな空間、Bedford Squareにもよくマッチしているいい作品だ。

Driftwood‘ is the AA school (Architectural Association School of Architecture)’s the fourth annual summer pavilion series and has been placed in Bedford Square, off Tottenham Court Road, from July 3rd. AA school is one of the world’s most renowned and influential schools of architecture, and its alumni include world renown architects such as Zaha Hadid and Rem Koolhaas. ‘Driftwood’ was designed by AA school students, Danecia Sibingo and her three team members (Lyn Hayek, Yoojin Kim, and Taeyoung Lee), inspired by images of Jordan’s UNESCO world heritage archaeological site Petra.

As its name, ‘driftwood’, it is a beautiful work with its streamline, and match with the quiet space of Bedford Square surrounded by preserved Georgian architectures.
