House of Flags

 

Part of Wonder: Incredible Installations

 

These 206 panels, present the flags of each country taking part in the 2012 Olympics and Paralympic Games in a large timber installation. Together, the panels make a united 'House of Flags', a mesh of symbols, shimmering colour, shadows and spaces inviting the viewer to see both the world and multicultural London. On the outside, the House of Flags is highly colourful, while inside has a natural timber finish, creating a monochrome, abstract and singular space.

 

Designed by AY Architects, CNC Fabricators by Grymsdyke Farm, Installation by Bolt &Heeks & Lighting Consultant – I Guzzini

 

Can you find the flag of your country?

If so it would be great if you left a comment :0)

I wonder if I can get 206 comments?
