Pavilion for temporary installation of tubes Flexi Duct Pump House
Tubes like arches for a pavilion in London. Union between engineering, art and education

Pump House Pavillon was created by the Neon Studio in collaboration with the students of Chestnut Grove. The aim was to demonstrate how art and design can find connections with science, technology, engineering and mathematics

Pump House Gallery has inaugurated a temporary pavilion, a bold, contemporary work that uses Flexi Duct tubes to create an immersive work that combines engineering, construction, art and education.
The 14 x 3.5 metre structure was part of the Wandsworth Arts Fringe and was used to host screenings, workshops and performances. Its design is the result of several months of dialogue with students at Chestnut Grove Academy in Balham, led by NEON architects and Elliot Wood structural engineers

The blue and yellow tubes have been shaped into arches, with alternating colours, to create a hypnotic "op- art" effect that attracts visitors. Inside, the storage tubes form seats and tables, for a new creative use of building materials. The architectural form is achieved through a series of repeated distorted arches, designed in reference to the classic brick arch

The aim of the project was to demonstrate how art and design can find links with STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to provide creative opportunities for young people in London's Wandsworth district. The designers and engineers worked with Chestnut Grove students to create The Pavilion, exposing them to the realities of an architectural project and the different roles and skills required
