and architects along with kbw design have recently revealed the BP pavilion for the upcoming 2012 olympic games in london. the initial striking feature of the pavilion is the expansive mirror facade that displays all activity happening in its proximity. the experience also includes the ‘walk in the park’ installation, a free standing angled structure which contains a convex mirror that allows the individual to pose in front of the reflected backdrop of the olympic stadium.

  • Fuelling the future?! BP plans to start drilling in the Arctic pretty soon. ‘Spoiling the future’ would have been more correct.
    What a disgrace for the games..
