리버 프론트에 위치한 퀸엘리자베스 홀의 아웃도어 스페이스를 활용한
템퍼러리 레스토랑 프로젝트 입니다.
8개의 컨테이너 박스는 엘로우, 블루 등 원색적인 다양한 컬러로 디자인되어
기존 그레이톤의 건축물이 잃어 버렸던 태양과의 호흡을 연결합니다.
-루이스 바라간의 원색적인 노란색과 파란색이 연상됩니다.
강렬한 컬러는 강렬한 태양빛과 묘한 대조를 이루며 공간의
이것은 컨테이너 스페이스 갖고 있는 장점을 십분 발휘한 계획으로
퀸 엘리자베스가 현재 담아 내지 못하고 있는 리버프론트의 활동적인 에너지를
수용 할 수 있도록 도와줍니다. 특히 템퍼러리 스페이스에 플렉시블하게
활용 될 수 있다는 점에서 컨테이너박스는 그 활용이 크다 할 수 있습니다.

The Wahaca Southbank Experiment is a new two-storey temporary restaurant installation, constructed from eight recycled shipping containers that have been ‘washed up’ on to the outdoor terrace of the Queen Elizabeth Hall at the Southbank Centre this summer. We developed the idea for using the shipping containers not only to remind visitors to the restaurant of the working history of this part of the river, but also for more practical reasons as their limited height allowed us to be able to fit two floors in to the volume of a single storey space.
Situated against the heavy concrete backdrop of the Queen Elizabeth Hall, each container is painted in one of four vibrant colours ranging from deep turquoise to straw yellow, providing a colourful contrast to the restaurant’s grey surroundings. The colour choices make reference to both the painted facades of typical street scenes in Mexico and the colour compositions often seen in container ships and ports. One of the top floor containers has been cantilevered out over the restaurants ramped entrance to create a canopy above the ground floor. On the upper level, the effect of this cantilevering heightens views from the upstairs bar out over the river towards Westminster.
Inside the restaurant the front and back containers are connected via a glazed link, which not only houses the stairway connecting the two floors, but also helps to flood the space with natural light. Each of the containers has then been given its own character with a mix of bespoke, new and reclaimed furniture along with distinct lighting designs. Outside, there is a wide variety of areas in which to sit, from the booth seats, built in to the raised timber deck around the building, to the first floor terrace bar, to the street bar overlooking Queen’s Walk.
Wahaca also commissioned Tristan Manco to curate an on-site series of street art murals around the timber deck seating area. The first piece that coincided with the restaurant opening was produced by renowned street artist Saner, who travelled from Mexico City to undertake the first of several murals that will be on display throughout the restaurant’s lifespan. With space for 130 diners, the Wahaca Southbank Experiment opened its doors on the 4th of July and will remain open for at least 18 months, providing an exciting and unique dining experience to compliment the Southbank Centre’s Festival of the World which is taking place from June until September.
SOUTHBANK CENTRE FESTIVAL OF THE WORLD
Southbank Centre opened its site-wide Festival of the World with MasterCard on 1 June 2012 for the Diamond Jubilee Weekend with the unveiling of an outdoor landscape. From robots climbing the Hayward Gallery and giant children’s blocks revealing hidden messages, to a huge baobab tree sculpture and the lush Queen Elizabeth Hall Roof Garden, the Festival transforms Southbank Centre’s 21-acre site with an array of installations, each with its own unique story. The Festival unveiling marked the start of a three-month celebration of the power of art to transform lives and runs until the 9th of September.
A new social space for those taking part in the Festival – the Festival Village – below the Queen Elizabeth Hall (at street level) has been created, where Festival artists, participants and partners can meet each other and exchange ideas. Led by Andrew Lock from Lyn Atelier, in partnership with TILT, Southbank Centre’s Festival Village has been conceived, designed and built collaboratively by more than 200 volunteers and professionals keen to learn and share new skills. It opens to the public for a number of performance and visual arts events over the summer.
During the summer more than 4,000 artists, poets, writers and performers from 195 countries will take part in hundreds of events, many of which are free, and each with an international flavour. www.southbankcentre.co.uk
