The Turning Tide –  designed by MVUU Studio.

One of 5 winners of the London Festival of Architecture 2022’s Pews and Perches compeition.

Steelwork fabricated by us.

MVUU on their concept:  “The Turning Tide is based upon the idea that small ideas can change attitudes, create influence and affect action and change. The form is a twisting volume of a simplified silhouette of a bench, constructed from recyclable timber and steel, and anchored with a gabion style cage below; the gabion cage filled with rocks containing messages from local members of the community hoping to influence adults into acting out changes to benefit the climate.”
