Akihisa Hirata: TanglingHundreds of models by Japanese architect Akihisa Hirata are pinned onto the looping walls of an installation at the Architecture Foundation during The London Design Festival. The immersive installation allows visitors to walk around the study models and conceptual sketches which give us an insight into Hirata's view of architecture and ecology as a complex, interwoven tangle. Having recently won the Golden Lion award at the 13th Venice Architecture Biennale, Hirata is currently the focus of media attention and The Guardian names this show in its 'Ten of the Best' shortlist in which it previews highlights of The London Design Festival.
