Boys' Winning Architecture Design Now in 3D
An exhibition pavilion designed by students at Harris Boys' Academy East Dulwich has been transformed into a 3D presentation, illustrating the manipulation of the earth by human hands.

Earlier this year our boys won an architecture at Grimshaw Architects, an international company whose projects include London Bridge Station, the Eden Project and Heathrow Terminal 1.
The competition was to build a pavilion responding to St James’ Churchyard in Clerkenwell. In normal years the pavilion would have been created and featured as part of Clerkenwell Design Week 2020.
However, this year the designed has been rendered digitally by Scale Rule, who organised the competition. The team at Scale Rule worked with our boys through a digital design workshop where the pavilion was collectively reviewed, tested and developed.
At the competition in February, the panel of judges were impressed by the strong concept underlying our boys' pavilion: a deconstructed dome pulled apart by the symbolic hands of humanity illustrating the impact of human creation and destruction on the planet.
“The dome represents the earth and the hands show humankind; this pavilion represents the damage humans have done and are doing to the planet.” HBAED Team 2020
View an augmented reality version of the pavilion now by scanning these QR codes on your smartphone. The pavilion can be experienced anywhere using the instagram filter to drop it into your surroundings and move around.
This was the sixth year of Scale Rule design-and-build pavilion projects. Our boys are pictured below after winning the design competition in Febrary 2020
