The Smile day 9

On day 9 of construction, the two cantilevered ends have been lifted into place, bringing the structure its full ‘Smile’ form.

Alison Brooks Architects are collaborating with The American Hardwood Export Council, Arup and the London Design Festival to present a cross-laminated tulipwood structure on the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground of the Chelsea College of Arts from 17 September until 12 October 2016.
