A new pavilion by UK architectural practice Carmody Groarke has opened in Regent’s Place, London. The structure is the result of a competition that the Architecture Foundation ran in 2007.

The competition brief called for a new pavilion at the Osnaburgh Street entrance to Regent’s Place ‘that enriches and activates the public open space at street level’. The winning design consists of a field of 8-metre-high slender columns, supporting a canopy.

Created in collaboration with engineers Arup, the pavilion sits in dialogue with the public colonnades that flank each side of the street. Bespoke LED lighting is set into the pattern of the cobbled surface between the columns to uplight the pavilion’s canopy.
