Pentagon Petal has been shortlisted for the New London Architecture Award supported by the Mayor of London featuring London’s best projects of the highest design quality which make a positive contribution to their surroundings and life in the capital.
Petagon Petal, a collaborative design with artist Fran Cottell created an ambitious communal urban furniture that immediately resonated with recognition for Westminster’s local population. Sited next to Tate Britain this 120 metre bench made an underused urban space usable and sociable, facilitating events and exchange, gathering its otherwise disparate communities. Constructed and funded locally and donated for reuse afterwards, this project provides an innovative prototype for a temporary urban furniture sited firmly in London’s evolving collective memory.
