Liquid Glacial Table in London by Zaha Hadid Architects

Tuesday, December 18th, 2012

Article source: Zaha Hadid Architects

The Liquid Glacial design embeds surface complexity and refraction within a powerful fluid dynamic. The elementary geometry of the flat table top appears transformed from static to fluid by the subtle waves and ripples evident below the surface, while the table’s legs seem to pour from the horizontal in an intense vortex of water frozen in time.

The Tree of Life: A Journey Through the Underworld in London, United Kingdom by Urban Brew

Monday, December 10th, 2012

Article source: Urban Brew

Visitors to the 2010 Bloomsbury Festival were invited to contribute to the evolving Tree of Life installation produced by Urban Brew. Produced to promote The Book of the Dead exhibition at the British Museum, Urban Brew interpreted the Egyptian Tree of Life into a site specific installation that attracted over 4,000 people. The installation reflected the importance the Ancient Egyptians attached to the ideas of life and death and invited the public to contribute by writing their name onto a paper bird, which would then be hung up to create a sea of flying birds overhead. The underworld was further explored in a series of soundscapes throughout the installation, produced by composer Jonathan Rousseau.
