    Food for Thought and other associated puns

    Chris Hildrey Apr 12 '11 0

    I've got a couple of blog posts waiting in the wings (some renders I did for an exhibition in Times Square and a talk I helped organize at the Barbican) but, while I wait for clearance from official photographers etc, I thought I'd get a quick blog post under the belt to test the new School Blog layout.


    Edible Architecture

    At Jestico + Whiles we have a practice half day every month in which we get to do creative tasks, site visits etc. In December, the task was to create Edible Architecture based on certain London landmarks. A friend and I were tasked with creating the Thames Barrier:






    Rather than make it out of sweets and cake, we decided to go a more fishy angle and make sushi instead (I'm not sure many fish survive the Thames but you get the idea).



    A few hours later, we were allowed to dig in. Unsurprisingly, our now dry and wilted sushi wasn't particularly high on many people's lists, however, I can proudly say that it was utterly foul.
