KREOD wins Temporary Structure award
KREOD, the new architecturally-striking sculpture constructed of Kebony’s sustainable wood, has won the Surface Design Award for Temporary Structure.
The Surface Design Awards are for international projects, interior or exterior, that have used surface materials in new or innovative ways. This year the Temporary Structure category attracted a particularly competitive and unusual range of entries of which KREOD was awarded the winner.
Collecting the prize from De Magazine on behalf of the KREOD team was Managing Director of Pavilion Architecture, Chun Qing Li who commented: “A huge thank you to everybody that voted for us. The extraordinary partners and team that provided the products, services and support are the reason KREOD was a success: Kebony, Quintain, Ramboll, TensileFabric, Serge Ferrari, Targetti Poulsen, Uniform; Bentley; AR18; JT Consulting and my honourable team Kin Ho, Ipek Kasaroglu, Hafed Burgess, Will Your and many others.”
KREOD, revealed in September 2012, is Kebony’s latest UK project and London’s newest architectural landmark. KREOD is a stunning new sculpture which currently forms the centrepiece of Peninsula Square, the busy public space between the Emirates Air Line and The O2 Arena on Greenwich Peninsula. From 5-7 March, KREOD will form the media and visitor centre for Ecobuild at Excel.
The brainchild of Chun Qing Li, KREOD is an innovative architectural sculpture, organic in form, environmentally-friendly and inspired by nature.
