Seasons Through the Looking Glass

Cj Lim and Studio 8 Architects installation 'Seasons Through the Looking Glass'.
CJ Lim had presented a paper, at the Memory and Touch Conference in May, about the work his architecture practice does with cut paper so I was expecting something unusual when he exhibited work in the underground entrance to the V&A.

The subject of the installation is mythical underground spaces, exploring the spatial possibilities of a subterranean garden. In London underground plants usually have ducts and boilers not trees and flowers. Lim's trees are made from paper and his roses from recycled garments, during the installations time at the V&A the roses will be changed to reflect the changing seasons.
