Working on the brief of a virtual intervention on a physical space within the White City area, we decided to replace the HELIOS sculpture of the BBC TV centre. The idea came from visiting the place and realising how ironic the symbolic representation of god of sun (Helios) was in relation to the grey and cold atmosphere of the space. Thus, we decided to take a more literal view on the concept and create a 'sunny/warm' space in the place of the sculpture. Our green house dome is a warm social space hosting tropical plants, while its surrounding lake collects the water from the rain to water the plants inside the dome.
