Driftwood (The Architectural Association’s 2009 Summer Pavilion)

Located in London’s Bedford Square, the concept author Danecia Sibingo created "Driftwood," with her three team members: Lyn Hayek, Yoojin Kim and Taeyoung Lee.

The catalyst for the design inspiration was derived by images of the Jordanian city of Petra. Sibingo desired a sensual and yet overwhelming spatial effect.

The design consists of twenty-eight layers of plywood concealing an overall internal ‘Kerto’ (renewable spruce plywood) structural system.
