"It’s just as well that Margaret Dewhurst, winner of this year’s Architectural Association student summer pavilion contest, has long hair. If she had cropped her long, flowing locks, she might not have had the inspiration for her project.
Dewhurst’s concept for the pavilion, entitled Bad Hair, was inspired partly by the sensation of wet hair drying over her face. “The aim was to create a similar visual effect, and it has since morphed into the Bad Hair pavilion, made of glue-laminated strands that crisscross over a sphere and sweep to the floor to enclose the passer-by in a shadowy tangle,” says the 19-year-old architecture student. The 4.3m-tall by 17m-wide pavilion will be vaguely reminiscent of a wig turned upside down, although the apparent “mess” of tangled wet strands belies an inherently ordered and logical sequence of design and construction."VIA : www.bdonline.co.uk
