Nicolas Feldmeyer weaves an impressive installation through the portico of UCL

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

Swiss architect-cum-artist Nicolas Feldmeyer re-landscapes existing buildings with diametrically aesthetic materials, working into the details of structure to create unexpected spaces and surprising elisions in form.

They’re executed in a deceptively simplistic way which makes a pretty impressive statement considering their temporary nature. Like the the time he strategically hung swathes of material which mimicked the ceiling of Christ Church Spitalfields Crypt, or, as can still be seen until June 14, wrapped the columns of University College London’s impressive portico in a meticulous wide weave.
