COLOUR WASH

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - FEATURE -

Lon­don-based artist Yinka Ilori is no stranger to chan­nelling the tra­di­tions of his Nige­rian her­itage in his con­tem­po­rary de­sign pieces and fur­ni­ture. For his col­lab­o­ra­tion with emerg­ing ar­chi­tec­ture prac­tice Price­gore for the sec­ond Dul­wich Pav­il­ion, an in­ter­ac­tive tem­po­rary out­door struc­ture to be un­veiled at next year’s Lon­don Fes­ti­val of Ar­chi­tec­ture, Ilori looked to the vi­brant mul­ti­cul­tur­al­ism of Peck­ham, known as Lon­don’s ‘Lit­tle La­gos’, for in­spi­ra­tion. Aptly ti­tled the Colour Palace, the light­weight struc­ture will com­prise brightly hued tim­ber lou­vres which create shift­ing lay­ers of pat­tern when viewed from dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives around the pav­il­ion, a flex­i­ble pub­lic space that can be used for per­for­mances and other ac­tiv­i­ties. yinkail­lori.com, price gore.co.uk
