For the second year running we worked with the in house team at Southbank Centre to imagine their summer festival; The Festival of the World. As part of the festival we designed a site wide look and feel based on packing crates. Conceived as having been washed up on the banks of the river Thames the packing crates- transformed Southbank Centre into a bustling port city. They told stories from projects around the world that celebrate how communities have been changed by art and were used as way finding and marketing points.
Inspired by the different shapes and sizes seen in a port we created a landscape of crates along the Thames which visitors could explore, go inside, through and under.
Taller structures made from timber and concrete were used as way finders for visitors around the site, as seating and to display large scale graphics.
