Museum of Architecture to host free music, sketching and drawing sessions to celebrate its ‘Wooden Parliament’ pavilion for London Festival of Architecture 2019

The Museum of Architecture (MoA) in collaboration with the London Festival of Architecture has unveiled seven metre high temporary wooden structure in London’s King’s Cross. Every day, throughout the month of June the Museum of Architecture has organised a series of free drop-in events inspired by the pavilion, including live music performances from the Royal College of Music and drop-in drawing workshops.

The Wooden Parliament is made of horizontally supporting wooded structures with a series of blown-up wooden knots that follow the precise geometry of the pavilion, adding to its unique external decoration. Inside the pavilion, rows of steps face each other to create platforms to encourage debate, conversation and contemplation.

Created by Spanish Architects Christina Díaz Moreno and Efrén Ga Grinda of AMID.cero9, Wooden Parliament, seeks to propose a space of dialogue and negotiation through which different viewpoints, ideas and relationships are forged.

The pavilion is free to visit throughout the month of June, and highlights of the programme of events includes drawing workshops, live portrait sketching and live performances from the Royal College of Music. Full programme here.

Free drop-in sessions – everyone welcome Wooden Parliament, entrance to Coal Drops Yard, just off Granary Square, King’s Cross N1C 4AA 3 June to 30 June 2019.
