The concrete crew has been hard at work once we finally got the gas line inspection taken care of (several issues there, but won't bore you with the details). We're still refining the final layout as the slope of the yard is even more severe than [...]

Made of steel, glass and limestone, this was first placed outside the entrance to the Business Design Centre in London. Here's what the Cass Sculpture Foundation says about it: "The scale of Pavilion gives the impression that this is architecture rather than sculpture - both ironical and apt, as an abiding interest in architecture lies at the roots of Hartley's sculpture and wall pieces. In fact this is a massive light box, in which carefully lit interior constructions and photographic panels give the illusion of rooms, steps, corridors and structures. The overhanging canopy and stone forecourt reinforce its presence as architecture, but nothing adds up and we are left mesmerised." And here's what Hartley says about it: "I'd like viewers to feel themselves pulled towards it, and find that the views inside Pavilion look more real than the urban space surrounding it."
