London floating exhibition gallery in UK by OFL architecture + fueralab

Saturday, May 28th, 2011

Article source: OFL architecture + fueralab

The concept design for the floating gallery on the River Thames comes from a single moment, an inspiration, hence, a re-discovery and re-interpretation of a landscape.  We strongly believe that contemporary architecture, clearly influenced by time and politics and socio-political issues, needs to also maintain a direct dialogue with nature.  A dialogue not only understood as literal interpretation but subjective definition, a metamorphosis of form and meaning.  We propose to base our design concept on a topography, a cut, a landscape; reinterpreting the idea of fluidity, whether in a liquid stage or a fixed ‘frozen’ surface.

Water is our inspiration. Water is life, breath, power, and above all things, beauty. The floating gallery takes all these elements, proposing a fluid exhibition space for recreational uses and contemplation; a city landmark… a landscape.

  • Title: London floating exhibition gallery
