  • These striking models were made for Rem Koolhaas and Cecil Balmond's Pavilion by ARUP. They are almost abstract, giving a sense of the feel of the space, designed to be seen alongside the more practical models made to show the building's form ¬© 2006 Cecil Balmond ARUP

  • The Pyramid of Feelings. 
This Pavilion will inspire people to show their true creativity by painting their feelings using art or words on the steps of the building. People from anywhere can bring paint, spray cans or pens to the Pavilion.

The top of the pyramid is for people who want to express their happiness and the bottom is for sadness. In future years it will become a memory of how people felt at this moment in time.

I made this pyramid out of stacked sugar cubes and painted the cubes with paint and pencil.

Amy, age 12
