Architectural Ride London

The development of culture is one of the highest possible human ideals. Therefore, in every museum it is not the exhibition of works that has meaning, but the presence of visitors and their wandering through and exposure to displays of works that stimulate meaning. The project puts the power station on centre stage, the structure itself enhancing the site through its impressive scale, its architecture, and its unique brick material. The created pathway links together a number of spaces for discovery: the square in front of the museum, clearings, footpaths outside and above and inside, footpaths traversing courtyards and exhibition rooms.

The angles and perspectives created by the rail’s pathway, through the movement within and outside of the structure, place visitors in a position where they can perceive simultaneously the container and its contents, the work and nature. They come to participate in several simultaneous experiences: enjoying the displayed works, being moved by the beauty of the structure and the city: river, park, buildings.

Atelier Zündel Cristea is a Paris located architectural firm, founded by Grégoire Zündel and Irina Cristea in January 2001. Over the course of ten years, A/ZC has participated in over hundred french and international architectural competitions. Our projects are principally public commissions within the fields of sports, housing, education, culture and the service sector. Their curiosity is directed toward addressing environmental problems, and toward experimentation.
