Céline Condorelli made a new artwork for Duggan Morris’ award-winning R7 building at King’s Cross. The brief asked for a structure that could accommodate different kinds of activity – sitting, talking, eating lunch, music recitals, poetry readings. Taking direct inspiration from the stage Lina Bo Bardi constructed for the now legendary restaurant Zanzibar in Salvador do Bahia, Brazil, Céline devised three ‘units’ strongly tied to traditions of tropical modernism, combining concrete and lush vegetation.

This work was commissioned as part of The King’s Cross Project.
