PUP Architects has installed a “subversive” duct-shaped pavilion on the roof of canal-side warehouse in Hackney, east London, in a bid to provoke local planners to consider the area’s redevelopment.
The London studio run by Theo Molloy, Chloe Leen and Steve Wilkinson drew up the design for the Architecture Foundation’s new Antepavilion programme, an annual commission sponsored by the property developer Shiva.
The structure joins a suite of pavilions commissioned by Shiva for the roof of its Columbia Wharf studios in recent years.
Designed as prototypes for alternative ways to live in the city, they aim to challenge planners’ decisions to allow a recent spate of luxury housing that has sprung up along the Regent’s Canal in the Hoxton and Haggerston area.
