'People of the World' installation as part of the London Design Festival in Brixton - designed and built by Crawford Architects using machine cut birch plywood sheets cut to exact shapes and assembled with fabricated steel brackets.
The Brixton Design Trail held a 3-stage design competition to design an installation for the Brixton route of the 2018 London Design Festival (project’s LDF webpage can be found here) of which the theme was ‘We Belong’.
Our winning entry uses the strong symbology of people holding hands in a circle, to support one another (the structure literally relies on each part to stand as a whole), as well as changing in size gradually. We chose this as it would be recognisable and resonate within the wider community, promoting a theme of inclusivity and belonging.
