Created by Five Line Projects Design and Research Office, and coinciding with the London Festival of Architecture, the Pinwheel Pavilion at the London Museum Gardens is the winner of ArchTriumph’s summer pavilion competition 2016.
Inspired by the classic childrens’ toy, the pinwheel, this pavilion is a catalogue of thousands of wooden mills upheld by a forest of steel pillars. Both structural and interactive, each of the wheels are systematically aligned; a push of a single wheel triggers the adjacent, and so on, spinning each subsequent wheel.
Part of The Pinwheel Pavilion is designed to engage the community and explore the potential energy that a single action triggers. Extrapolating this concept to the wider community, it supports the belief that people are the most prominent force that propels a community’s well-being. The individual is the single component that triggers the grander action.
Five Line Projects Design and Research Office, based in East London, was founded by a group of driven young architects and designers whose multi-disciplinary background guides them to projects diverse in scale. Their mission is simply to create good and accessible design with an inquisitive attitude and refreshing ideas.
