The prizewinning Horizon Pavilion is urgently looking for a new location.
Made after winning the FIRST@108 Public Art Award of the Royal British Society of Sculptors (RBS) and after being exhibited at wonderful locations in London;
at the RBS in Kensington, on top of the National Theatre on the South Bank en more recent at the English Norfolk coast it is now looking for a new home.
The work is a small outside pavilion of steel (approx. l.5 x w.3 x h. 2,8 meters) made for public space.
In cooperation with renowned engineering firm WSP (the firm behind the Shard building in London), the RBS and FluxMetal (a steelmakers firm specialised in big artworks) it is build and approved (health and safety) for use in different outside spaces.

Do you have or know of a location where this work could find a temporary or even permanent place very soon?
We would love to hear from you!
Thanks to artist Rob Olins and photographer Anders Gramer great pictures where made of the Horizon Pavilion during its exhibition at the South Bank in London. From February 23rd to April 20th 2012 the Horizon Pavilion featured at a wonderful location on top of one of the terraces of the National Theatre.
The National Theatre is located in between the London Eye, the Hayworth Gallery and Tate Modern.
The Horizon Pavilion is an attempt to invoke the open, tranquil, Dutch flatland in the busy city of London. Entering the pavilion through a doorway, one enters a corridor-like structure of open metal frames which twist and widen to towards a large window. The large reflective surfaces of the window obscure most of the street view leaving just a narrow horizontal strip. The mirrors above and below this reflect the sky and give the illusion of a wide Dutch horizon: just water, land and cloudy sky.
The Horizon Pavilion is being made at FluxMetal in London.
