The London Vibe Cuboid ,a proposal that aims to capture and convey the essence of this transformation as it manifests itself along the Waterloo Bridge, one of the city’s oldest and most iconic structures. A modern installation on top of the Queen Elizabeth hall, the London Vibe Cuboid will transfer travelers’ quivers of activity along a pulsating Waterloo Bridge to its visitors in the form of colored light waves flowing across the installation’s walls and furniture.
