Wallington Hall

Brief Encounter

The structure represents one of seven, modern day “Follies” set in the gardens of Wallington Hall. Constructed of Polycarbonate and Plywood on a steel frame. The folly was a cube, split on the diagonal, one side sliding away from the other, heavy and light, opaque and translucent. The folly was fundamentally a seated viewing platform, picture-framing a view across the lake, but was used with great success as a framed performance space, by Dodgy Clutch Theatre company, completely reversing its use as a viewing platform into a stage.

The project was a joint collaboration between Ryder and AMEC construction who provided the steel fabrication the labour, and transportation for this temporary project.
