Characterising the largest mobilisation The Royal Parks has seen in 14 years. The high-profile commission included the delivery of a coffee house near the Serpentine lake, as well as nine “handcrafted” kiosks to replace aging food kiosks on existing sites across Hyde Park, Green Park and St James’s Park. The most recently erected structure, the flagship Horseshoe Bend kiosk in St James’s Park, is clad in tubular brass and mirrors the ornate precious metals of the nearby Sir Thomas Brock’s Queen Victoria Memorial.

The past and present of Soils A. On the Tang Mountain located in the suburb of Nanjing, with the verdant and foggy surroundings. Ten towering cylindrical grey cement silos are set upright here alone. The absolutely geometrical shapes stand out, which look like a series of big exclamation points, telling the world the past story that the mountain was dissected, the ores were continuously mined, the massif was exposed nakedly and the pit was dug deep, the machines roared in the cement processing plant, powder and smoke rose from all around, and sewage flew everywhere. Later, This place gained its peace again. Ten silos stared at the sky straightly, as if they had been ten-round eyes, waiting for some moment in space-time when fresh new soul was to be injected again.
