A Turkish architecture studio has unveiled a unique public installation outside London’s Royal Academy of Arts.
SO? Architecture and Ideas has created The Unexpected Hill, which will host performances and activities until Sunday 20th September.
A response to the Royal Academy’s ‘transformation’ theme, the installation consists of blue and white ceramic triangular prisms stacked and staggered to create a 3D public seating area for visitors.
The studio was inspired by ‘Muqarnas’, a design technique typically found in Islamic architecture, which co-founder Sevince Bayrak described as ‘an example of using geometry to convert a 2D object into a 3D space’.
