Having exchanged its shady past for a renovation of design, architecture and culture, King's Cross is getting another addition to its quirky and creative space with two new pavilions for this year's London Festival of Architecture. They join the array of fun fountains, colourful lights, smart restaurants, a viewing tower and astroturfed canal-side seating that now cover the space.
The theme of the Festival is 'work in progress' and both designs interpret this in different ways. The red design comes from a Dublin-based collaboration between TAKA, Clancy Moore Architects and Steve Larkin Architects, and aims for visitors to have fun within it. The yellow pavilion, meanwhile, created by Belfast-based Hall Mcknight, is all about the bits and pieces that help build a city, housing a collection of bricks. Go down and check them out.
Both will last for the duration of the festival until the end in June.
