Satellite Architects have designed a pixelated facade for Designjunction temporary exhibition space at Cubitt House in Kings Cross, London. The facade combines natural and artificial elements by wrapping a reflective, gridded screen on top of a second screen of trees and bushes, allowing the foliage to peek through.
It is the combination of the natural artificial elements that Satellite Architects believe "reflect the temporary nature of the Design Junction exhibition." The array of pixelated panels merges the obvious structural system with reflections of the context and glimpses of nature, softening the strength of the grid.
The reflective elements amplify the facades presence, multiplying the natural elements to give the feeling that visitors are "passing through the shrouded foliage" as they pass through to the exhibition. The panels are composed of an integrated wayfinding device, guiding visitors to the entrances.
The facade will be constructed in early September this year, in time for the Designjunction Festival which runs from 22-25th September in Kings Cross, London. The exhibition has been organized as part of the London Design Festival.
