A new Oculus Pavilion, designed and built by third year Architecture students from the University of Westminster, will open Wednesday 13th June, at the rear of Westminster’s Marylebone Campus, as part of the London Festival of Architecture.
The circular structure with a view into the sky was inspired by architect Vladimir Tatlin’s 1919 design Tatlin Tower, a design not realised until a sculpture was built in 1971 as part of the “Art in Revolution” exhibition at the Hayward Gallery. The 1971 sculpture was reconstructed at the rear patio of the Marylebone Campus, the same location where the students’ Oculus pavilion will be exhibited this year.
The project was funded by the Quintin Hogg Trust and led by Westminster Architecture Lecturers Maria Kramer and Eric Guibert.
