From the architect. Nicholas Kirk Architects have been appointed to design a folly for the London Festival of Architecture. The practice have design a project that augments reality whereby visitors enter into an environment that does not quite appear as it should. The architecture creates an illusion whereby perspective views are distorted inside the space and scale and proportion are challenge the senses.

The pavilion is designed to encourage play and performance and coincide with the over arching themes of both the London Festival of Architecture (the Playful City) and activities that will take place at the The London Pleasure during the summer of 2012.

I understand what they tried to do, but it's not working imo.
