Studio Troika's The Weather Yesterday

Studio Troika have been producing some lovely work over the last few years, including the V & A's moving palindromic signage and various other commissions at Heathrow Terminal 5 and the Shanghai World Expo, but I think my favourite so far has to be this recent temporary commission in Hoxton Square in London commissioned by RIBA, The Weather Yesterday.

Unfortunately being too fat to travel anywhere (I'm pregnant, not just fat) and only just finding out about it, it is no longer on display (it came down on 9th September) but looks brilliant from the photos.

I also thought it might amuse a few people given the recent downpours. 

Troika say: 
'The Weather Yesterday' takes our obsession with progress ad absurdum by sardonically changing our focus from 'forecast' to the 'past'. The five-metre-high sculpture celebrates the weather as a predominant top of discussion in British culture while offering a spin on the urgency with which we are using our mobile devices, forecasting and interactive technology.'
