This stunning building was nominated for the recent Stirling Prize. It is built into a weir, and generates all its heating from the water rushing past its foundations. The structure and forms are very unusual - I suspect Hepworth may have had something to say about it! The play of light and shadow is very effective.

The sculptures were crying out to be drawn, and proved to be very inspirational forms

The first two pages are currently being translated into etchings, hope to show you on the next post.
