The concept design for the floating gallery on the River Thames comes from a single moment, an inspiration, hence, a re-discovery and re-interpretation of a landscape. Contemporary architecture, clearly influenced by time and politics and socio-political issues, needs to also maintain a direct dialogue with nature. We propose to base our design concept on a topography, a cut, a landscape; reinterpreting the idea of fluidity, whether in a liquid stage or a fixed ‘frozen’surface. Water is our inspiration. Water is life, breath, power, and above all things, beauty. The floating gallery takes all these elements, proposing a fluid exhibition space for recreational uses and contemplation; a city landmark... a landscape. The landscape, studied through an intensive survey of it’s vegetation and colouring, we have based our exterior exhibition space under the large possibility of varying the colour scheme four times a year.
