Unexpected Hill, by SO? Architecture and Ideas Commissioned for Royal Academy of Arts with Turkishceramics 2015

SO? Architecture and Ideas’ installation is a playful intervention that transforms a currently under-utilised space into a much needed place in Mayfair where people can sit and take time out, or explore and come together.’

Turkishceramics and the Royal Academy of Arts appointed emerging Istanbul-based architectural practice SO? to design Unexpected Hill, a bold urban intervention made from ceramics that invited the public to occupy it over the summer months. Unexpected Hill was located at the threshold of the Royal Academy’s Grade-II listed Burlington Gardens and was accompanied by a display inside the building.
