New Home for the Termite Pavilion
The Termite Pavilion which was the centre piece of the PESTIVAL 2009 exhibition at the Southbank Centre, has a permanent new home at Escot Park near Exeter in Devon.
The six metre squared, walk-in structure, inspired by the inside of a Namibian termite mound, was designed to allow PESTIVAL goers a unique insight into these extraordinary organic forms. Following the exhibition, the Pavilion was moved to London Zoo for a one year tenure, which ended last week.
The Pavilion is currently being dismantled in preparation for its move to its beautiful new home in Escot Park, and will be available for visitors to see from mid October,
"We feel really privileged to have been chosen as the Pavilion's new home" said John-Michael Kennaway, Escot's owner. "East Devon's beautiful countryside will be a worthy setting for such an important piece of art. Escot's estate staff are already preparing an ideal woodland site within the Gardens as its final home."
