Last Friday Night Late theme was unbuilt, to tie in with the current Thomas Heatherwick exhibition. His work includes a exterior window display for Harvey Nichols of exposed wooden legs. He also recently redesigned the red london bus. In the main entrance was a installation which consisted of light up florusecent tubes, with ipads hanging down.
The evening explored the interplay between architecture and the visual arts. Ranging from the current pop-up phenomenon of temporary installations, to film, performance, music and workshops, Friday Late presents a wide range of projects where experimenting at the boundary of art and architecture forms the primary source of inspiration.
