pavilion open!

The pavilion opening last night was a fantastic success. A sincere thank you to all those involved for making it happen. Many of the team are taking a well deserved holiday next week but we will post some more images over the next few days as they come in.

There will be a 'post op' presentation and round table discussion in the AA on the 18 April attended by the design team, sponsors, manufactures and assembly teams, which will examine the issues raised during the design and construction process and how they can be related to current architectural practice. All are welcome to attend.

T minus 24h 10m 32sec....

the scaffolding is down, the books are printed, the invitations have been sent, and the audience is waiting...

yet with the opening exactly a day away....it looks like we're almost there....BUT we've had some last minute issues pop-up to sort out on-site. MAJOR anxiety right now...so keep your fingers crossed...the team is hustling trying to make things happen.

and don't forget to wish us luck....we need it.

in the meantime here's some eye candy to keep you occupied...
