Sometimes living in London, beside the fog and the rain, should be a great thing. And if you were one of the walkers on the Thames River these days, you would get one more reason to be proud.

Beside the usual newspapers and coffee, the walkers admired the latest urban creations from DSDHA architects.

The pavilions used special construction techniques: layered stacks of whitened calcified timber, with a green roof; another one is "the first charred timber-clad structure in the UK, created in a technique similar to the Japanese Yakisugi".

The project was exhibited in 2007, at the Royal Academy Summer Show and this spring it became a real urban environment project.
For me they look like a giant Jenga game :)
