Concrete dreams


This immersive experience was to celebrate the reopening of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Rooms and Hayward Gallery at Southbank Centre. Concrete Dreams was an experiential tour through the back stage of the Queen Elizabeth Hall. The guided experience took public through a history of the design and the construction of the building into a more traditional exhibition space culminating in a son et lumiere experience viewed from the Purcell room stage. We collaborated with Klang Haus, to produce a rich audio visual experience reusing construction material from the building project to create custom display cases, and using audio and video to bring the history of the building to life.

The exhibition also included a beacon which sat outside to mark the reopening of the building. The beacon was a 6 metre high cylindrical tower made from CNC discs on a wooden frame with coloured polycarbonate fins and a swinging pendulum in the middle designed by Artists and Engineers. The Beacon included a sound installation telling the story of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Purcell Rooms and Hayward Gallery.
