The Crystal

Early-stage design for a visitor’s pavilion for the Kurt Schwitters festival to be held in Cumbria, UK.  The design is particularly inspired by Schwitters’ Hanover Merzbau of 1923-37, as well as El Lissitzsky’s Red Wedge, Konstantin Melnikov’s Soviet pavilion at the 1925 Paris Worlds Fair, Vladamir Tatlin’s Monument to the Third International, and Bruno Taut’s Crystal Mountain.

Architecture is sculpture, and sculpture is architecture.
