Streetscape Carousel is the latest offering from young architecture and design collective PUP based in London.
'Each Carousel relates uniquely to its area showcasing its character through a display of its architecture: contemporary and historic buildings alongside landmarks of local importance, reflecting its cultural and physical diversity. The selected buildings and structures of different scales are collaged together to form a silhouetted wrapped around the inside of a cylindrical drum which is raised up on legs. At night, a central light illuminates the silhouette from the inside, projecting the silhouetted streetscape in light and shadow back onto its surroundings. By turning a crank, the layer of silhouettes can be made to rotate animating the shadows across the surfaces of the urban space in which it rests.http://cargocollective.com/pup/Streetscape-Carousel'
