A temporary exhibition space for London Design Festival

The Queen’s Park Pavilion is a temporary project for the exhibition “Plants Out of Place” in Queen’s Park, as part of the London Design Festival.

It encourages engagement by the wider community with the value of wild plants and their utilisation for a more sustainable future.

The inviting form of the pavilion was inspired by the theme of the exhibition and the context of the park. It engaged the local community with contemporary architecture and the design was developed through consultation with the curators and contractors.

Clad in black, spaced diagonal battens, a visual permeability was created, allowing the exhibition contents and the park to be simultaneously experienced and maximizing the connection between plants and place.

Three interlocking garden rooms of varying heights and exhibits ensured ever changing views and orientation.
