|:||The London Dresser is a large-scale cabinet displaying small scale buildings. London’s architectural crown jewels are recreated as beautifully crafted seats. By day the cabinet opens and the seats are arranged to create a skyline view and social gathering space. The cabinet becomes a belvedere that frames this view and captures it changing on film throughout the Olympic / Paralympic Games 2012. By night the buildings are placed inside the cabinet to create an interactive backdrop to the street, where they are momentarily illuminated when people pass by and peer in. The project was commissioned by the Mayor of London as part of the Wonder Installations series for 2012.|
