Winter Windows 2019Images1 / Information
Location London SW9
Status Completed 2019
In its third year, Winter Windows is a collaboration between a group of local school-aged children, and architects and model makers from Squire & Partners. For 2019 we worked with Lansdowne School, with previous installations created with Hill Mead Primary in 2018,and Stockwell Primary in 2017.
Over the course of two workshops run by the practice, students were challenged to create interactive winter shapes using a continuous line of light, in which the human body could take centre stage. The final designs included a superhero cape, reindeer antlers, fairy queen wings and a musical microphone.
Sixteen students from Lansdowne School, who live with a range of communication and learning difficulties, were joined by their families and school governors to see their sketches and ideas come to life in the windows of The Department Store during the switch-on ceremony, which was attended by the Deputy Mayor of Lambeth Philip Normal and a children’s choir from Corpus Christi school.
