The Nest - London Design Festival
Event type: outdoor activity
Location: Museum Lane, Exhibition Road (between the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum)
The Nest is an outdoor, sheltered lookout platform that evokes a bird's nest where you can enter, explore and observe life on Exhibition Road.
Designed by Juliet Quintero from award-winning architecture-art-shaping studio Dallas-Pierce-Quintero, The Nest is made of differing lengths of red oak pieces randomly layered to form the structure. The different lengths let the light filter through at various points, creating a distinct atmosphere throughout the day.
The piece is part of the London Design Festival (14-22 September) which celebrates and promotes London as the design capital of the world.
