Giant Xylophone at the London Festival of architecture 2016

Architecture firm pH+ has created an incredible pavilion in Greenwich that can be played like a large scale musical instrument, for this years London Festival of Architecture 2016. The pavilion features walls covered in copper pipes, allowing the building to function as a huge xylophone. pH+ created the temporary structure for the London Centre for Children with Cerebral Palsy (LCCCP), to showcase some of the features it will include in an extension to the organization’s only school building.

Children are given small mallets at the entrance, allowing them to make music by striking the walls as they walk through the pavillion.
