London Olypmic Energy Centre

With John McAslan Architects

Key points as a basis for an artwork:

 

The treatment of the ‘interstitial’ space between the rubber cladding and the external mesh surface.

 

The use of light as a material / substance.

 

Light operating at the borders of the tangible and intangible.

 

The building as living entity - the idea of a breathing layer.
