Early on in the summer, which seems like a while ago now, I photographed a small project initiated by RIBA London where a group of Part 1 and 2 architecture students were commissioned to design (and build) a temporary bandstand in front of Royal Festival Hall on the Southbank, London.
It’s fairly rare in architecture for students in their early twenties to get the chance to see a design process all the way from inception to production information, construction and completion, so this was a great opportunity for those involved to get this experience. When completed, the bandstand proved incredibly popular with the public, with events hosted on and around it for the whole summer. These images, and the accompanying video (after clicking "Read More"), were commissioned by the students involved.
