Monica Bonvicini created this awesome typographic art installation for the 2012 London Olympics. This is the largest standalone artwork on the olympic park, made of three nine-metre tall letters that form the word “RUN”. The letters are made of mirrored glass and mirrored stainless steel.
“In daylight, the letters will act as a mirror for visitors and reflect their surroundings, and at night the letters will become more transparent and glow with complex internal LED lighting.”

I don’t want to be impolite, but that’s the first thing I though when I saw the pictures of the new Sarpi Border Chekpoint building in Turkey by J. Mayer H.. Seriously, I loved the Metropol Parasol project… but this one is totally out of my scope. What’s the concept ? A morphing barbapapa sculpture of parapets and balconies ? A retro wavy post modern trip ? It looks more like the caricature of the architect’s curvy signature.
