  • Visitor Information

The Rainforest Pavilion sets up a striking oasis in the centre of London as part of the 2014 London Festival of Architecture. The imposing five metre high temporary installation by Chilean-German architecture practice GUN Architects, set up in the south-west corner of Bedford Square, invites visitors to sit beneath a canopy of inverted prisms to enjoy a forest-like environment of raindrops, pools and plants. It's all part of the GUN Architects interest in and research into water as protagonist of architecture. An exhibition in the main AA Gallery (17th May until 14th June 2014) describes the development of the project and also features photographic works by Cristobal Palma and Helene Binet.
