Coal Drops Yard will be home to a Festival Commission by Martino Gamper. This one-off site-specific installation is a playful temporary addition to the King’s Cross architecture: a false facade of a disco with a fresh take on traditional cladding from the Italian Alps.

About

Gamper’s concept is designed as a gateway within Coal Drops Yard and is inspired by the concept of a Potemkin village. The term comes from stories of a fake portable village built to impress Empress Catherine II by her lover Grigory Potemkin during her journey to Crimea in 1787. 

The structure will have a low environmental impact, with all materials being either waste products, recycled or later repurposed.

In addition to the installation, King’s Cross will for the first time become a Design District following the success of the area’s Design Route last year. It will also welcome back the Design Destination, designjunction.

Supported by Coal Drops Yard with further support by Alpi.
