We are undertaking a proof of concept study to enable early-stage client discussions. The solutions being investigated are founded on sustainability, renewable energy and achieving minimal environmental impact.

Raynham Hall Pavilion
was intended to be an impactful and interactive piece which changed throughout
the day to reflect the atmosphere of the festival. It takes inspiration
from the designer’s experience in Moscow and Russia at large, with references
to some of the ad hoc temporary structures that can be seen on construction
sites around the city.
challenges of this project came from the specification that it had to be a
temporary structure which needed to be easy to construct, deconstruct and store
for reconstruction the following year; that at night the sculpture was to be
lit internally and that the external appearance of the structure couldn’t differ
from the original design meaning all supports and bracing had to be internal.

We have worked with RPP, the executive architects, to provide the structural engineering solution to the design provided by Alexander Brodsky, the artist.
The complexities came from the location, being in the middle of a park, the fact that there was no deviating at all from the artist aspirations, that it had to be kept as simple as possible so that the students at the Architectural Association could construct it and that any foundation system used had to be temporary so as at the end of the installation it could all be removed without making large disturbances to the grass.
