Architects recreate landmarks for jelly design competition
Wednesday 02 July 2008
The London Festival of Architecture – which began on the 20 June – will climax in a competition in which 10 of the world’s most famous buildings will be recreated in jelly.
Over 100 designers and architects have submitted entries to the competition – including architectural big hitters Sir Norman Foster, Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, Wil Alsop and Lord Richard Rogers. The competition will raise money for the London Festival of Architecture’s disaster and development charity, Article 25.
Entries will be showcased at the ‘Architectural Jelly Banquet’ - a unique event held at the University College London on Friday evening – where revellers will come dressed as desserts, watch jelly wrestling and listen to “bespoke wobbling soundscapes and projections” late into the night.
