LONDON, 10-9-2014 — /EuropaWire/ — London is preparing for its annual celebration of great design with the 2014 London Design Festival, and a partnership between one of the world’s most exciting architects and one of the city’s best galleries will be one of the central features of the event, which also sees dramatic new temporary sculptures appearing in Trafalgar Square. Zaha Hadid Architects have created an installation, Crest, which will transform the V&A’s central courtyard, the John Madejski garden, for the duration of the festival. The festival takes place at venues all over London between 13th – 21st September, attracting thousands of global visitors. Those attending should visit LondonTown.com to get the latest deals on London hotels.
Crest is a beautiful sculpture that promises to create an intriguing dialogue between the sleek, streamlined structure and the historic backdrop in which it is sited. It will provide a new focal point for the museum’s courtyard, and will capture attention and encourage them to explore the new quality of space created within. Zaha Hadid is the architect responsible for the dramatic aquatic centre in London’s Olympic Park, as well as numerous other distinctive buildings around the world.
Zaha Hadid said of the installation, ‘Crest animates and engages with the V&A’s courtyard and we’re looking forward to seeing the installation inhabited and enjoyed by visitors. We envisaged a piece that would emerge from the fountain at the centre of pool. The metallic surface will reflect the sky on one side and the rippling water on the underside.’ For more about the London Design Festival 2014, and also other events and exhibition being held at the V&A this September, see LondonTown.com, London’s best website for tourists seeking to get the best information about the capital as well as the greatest deals in London hotels.
