Galaxy of stars in a Zen garden: The Crescent house by Andrew Burns Architects.
Text: Detail Daily
The Crescent House occupies a position verging on art. It also act as a mediator suggesting to others, ordinary things that might merit aesthetic consideration. It frames a hedge, transforms sunlight into a galaxy of stars, and calms the tumult of an outside world.
The Crescent House, designed by Australia's Andrew Burns, is the first project of the Fugitive Structures programme. The initiative aims to hold invited competitions for emerging and mid career architects to design a small scale temporary pavilion for SCAF's Zen garden.
Inspired perhaps, by the annual Serpentine Gallery Pavilion, the Fugitive Structures programme has the capacity to discover new or unacknowledged talent, rather than just trumpeting architects who have already achieved global fame.
