Webb Yates Engineers - Pavilion for London Festival of Architecture

As part of this year's London Festival of Architecture, HUB is pleased to be supporting "Third Space: Craft Not Carbon Pavilion", which is located in Crystal Palace Park

Designed by Webb Yates Engineers in collaboration with Studio Saar and Xylotek, the Craft Not Carbon pavilion, featuring a woven canopy, seeks new ways of thinking about structures. Responding to challenges of our time, it questions ‘is local material, craft and maintenance a viable solution for the future of construction?’

The project brings ideas from a new learning/cultural centre in India created by Studio Saar with Webb Yates Engineers, and echoes Joseph Paxton’s temporary iron structure located in Crystal Palace Park for the 1851 Great Exhibition, which itself challenged the future of construction.

Open throughout the LFA, 7th June to 2nd July 2023. More information here.
