Each pier is a large auditory volume of crystalline gothic-inspired echo chambers with a dynamic core that expands/contracts by absorbing surrounding water. This constantly changes the internal surface and auditory qualities of the chambers. Through this absorption/dispersion cycle sound is created and reverberated, becoming a warning system for London by creating a symphony on the water.
This definitive perspective shows the project in context at night when the tide is high and the colour intensity of the crystalline gothic chambers is at its most prominent; illuminating Metropolitan Eastminster as a visual spectacle on the River Thames.
* Has been exhibited in the Royal Academy of Art, London.
