Selgascano Serpentine Pavilion

Selgascano design for the 15th Pavilion was sponsored by Goldman Sachs. The project reveals an amorphous, double-skinned, polygonal structure consisting of panels of a translucent, multicolored fluorine-based polymer (ETFE) woven through and wrapped like webbing.  Visitors can enter and exit the Pavilion at a number of different points, passing through a secret corridor, between the outer and inner layer of the structure and into the Pavilion’s colorful interior. The architects’ inspiration not only came from the site itself, but from the ways in which people move through London, notably the London Underground with its many-layered, chaotic yet structured flow.

Bompas & Parr. Sensory Accumulator

Thornton's store in Westfield Stratford was home to a bespoke ‘Sensory Accumulator’ created by Bompas & Parr.  The pink pod takes chocolate fans on a taste journey, heightening your senses to create the perfect chocolate eating experience.   After a brief taste profiling, you are matched to the perfect balance of flavours inside the pink taste pod, where you become immersed in a audio-visual tasting experience.
Once their ideal chocolate has been discovered, your donned headwear is configured with EEG technology that monitors your brain’s activity.  The visuals displayed within the pod are informed by your taste preferences.   The Sensory Accumulator isolated gustatory explorers from every sensation other than the carefully choreographed array of flavours introduced to your palate. What’s more the chamber also created the perfect situation for food-centric relaxation, the ultimate immersive taste journey!
