Bridge of size

July 26th, 2012

A large, bridge-like structure designed by students at the School of Architecture and Built Environment made the perfect backdrop from which to wave goodbye to the Olympic Torch. The Nottingham Shipping Shelter: Fleeting Retreat took centre stage at Nottingham Castle as the torch left the city.

“The pavilion invites people to explore it, take a rest and engage with its message of sustainability in the built environment,” said lecturer Guillermo Guzman Dumont. “Its complex and sculptural beauty, resulting from a creative combination of very simple elements, generates a contrasting but at the same time harmonious integration with the built and natural context of the castle.”
