😁Smile, it's the weekend! 😁Congratulations @alisonbrooksarchitects on winning the 2017 World Architecture Festival Display Award for Completed Buildings for #LDF16 Landmark Project The Smile. 🎈🎈🎈
Located in the public pavilion in the Chelsea College of Art (UAL) Parade ground, The Smile showcased the structural and spatial potential of cross–laminated hardwood using American tulipwood.
This extraordinary building, designed by Alison Brooks Architects with engineering by Arup, straddled architecture, sculpture, and public art. It could be described as an unidentified flying object: a 34m long, 3m high upside down arc poised on the urban horizon. It was a doubly cantilevered, four sided tube that curved upward to its two open ends, allowing light to wash across its interior surfaces like water across a spillway. Hovering 3m above the ground, its two ends acted as viewing platforms taking in the sky and neighbouring Edwardian buildings. Entering The Smile through an opening where the curved form meets the ground, the visitor could walk (or run!) from end to end of the 34-metre-long tube discovering a dynamically curved space that gradually rises toward light. A segment of a 100m diameter circle, the Smile created an immersive sensory environment integrating structure, surface, space and light.

The London Design Festival 2017 mainly separated into several parts and my fav one was West Brompton District. In te Cromwell Place, most of participates focused on how to let visitors imagined and truly understood their ideas and images in the artsy way. They gathered in one area together that created the stronger power and connection to express their ideas.
