"Rest in GreenPeace" on show in London

Space&matter has been invited to exhibit its entry “Rest in Greenpeace” as part of the international competition Heathrow Airport Contest. In January 2010, Greenpeace launched an architectural competition to stimulate ideas for ways to fortify the Airplot in case a new government allows BAA’s third runway plans to proceed. Effectively, the brief was to come up with a 21st century fortress – capable of resisting BAA’s bulldozers and stopping construction of the runway. The jury specially commended the design ’Rest in Greenpeace’ for outstanding conceptual idea and tactic. The entry was made in collaboration with the befriended office Specialist Operation (http://www.so-eu.com), headed by Jan Willem Petersen. Private view – Wednesday 2nd June, 6:30 – 8.30pm, Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, Bargehouse Street, South Bank, London SE1 9P. For more information visit the contest website
