Pavilion in Bedford Square

We were up in town yesterday evening and happened to pass Bedford Square where there’s an intriguing piece of art/architecture.

It’s the winner of a competition which was judged on “constructability within a tight schedule and budget, simplicity and elegant form, effective use of material, pavilion as a continuous extension of furniture to roof structure.”

I thought it looked lovely and if you’re in the area well worth a short visit.

More – and better – photos of the pavilion here.

    Passed that last week while out on a very lovely walk around Bloomsbury with JJ. We too thought it lovely, but not that lovely that we didn’t walk on and have a great meal at Tas just down the road on the corner of Great Russel Street.

    You’re right it’s not a stay all day thing, just a momentary distraction.
