Ever dreamed of paint bombing the Gherkin?

Soundings’ sister company Industri[us] stages its first events  in a couple of weeks’ time as part of the London Festival of Architecture, 2012. Read on to find out more.
What: A series of events and entertainment for all ages are planned by Industri[us]
Where: Just opposite the Canning Town Underground Station on a development site between Silvertown Way and Clarkson Road (formerly Montesquieu Estate), London, E16 1EA.
Paint bombing the London Skyline – Help build a giant catapult, and take a shot!
Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th June
11am – 4pm each day

Join renegade researchers Guerilla Science and engineers from Buro Happold to build a giant catapult, and take aim at a target range of our city’s most iconic buildings. With the help of engineering expertise, learn to build a massive slingshot and see who can fling their paint filled missiles the farthest. Come help us make an even bigger mess of a demolished site in East London. Fun for all ages. All architects must be accompanied by a child.

The event is powered by Industri[us], a collaborative action that reworks and revalues former waste products, transforming them into objects that are useful and desirable. If you would like to donate materials or indeed models to our reconfigured ‘London’ please contact Clare (clare@industri-us.org) or Kat (kat@industri-us.org)

This event is generously sponsored by the Royal Academy of Engineering. For more details visit www.guerillascience.co.uk and www.industri-us.org.
