The structure is located outside the AA in Bedford Square and coincides with the London Festival of Architecture, which runs until this weekend.

In what is turning out to be something of a glut of pavilions, Swoosh joins the [c]space Pavilion (above), which is also located in Bedford Square. See our previous story for more info about this one.

--

The Swoosh Pavilion is the 2008 AA Summer Pavilion built annually by the second and third year students of Intermediate Unit 2 tutored by Charles Walker and Martin Self. For the students who conceive, design and construct the pavilion it’s a phenomenological exercise, going from idea to design and finally realization.
