Architectural photographer Pasi Aalto sent us this photos of the 1:1 – Architects Build Small Spaces exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum in . The V&A invited nineteen architects to submit proposals for structures that examine notions of refuge and retreat. From these nineteen concept submissions, seven were selected for construction at full-scale.

    It’s nice, a tower inside a tower, more simbolic than practical. Why the ramp? This tower obviously can not be used by people in wheelchairs. I like the way they put a few seats in the central core, so at least some one can sit and read.

      Will it be even more interesting if there can be some interactions between the small tower and the huge stair case surrounding it? I mean, besides just the visiual conversation between these two? Currently this small tower some how looks like a wooden cage:)

      Not all ramps are for accessibility issues. Sometimes the slow ascension is part of the architecture.

    it evidently doesn’t has the same finishing of anything around it, but the design of the structure seems to get some accord with the overall lines of the building
