Hairywood Periscope

Nope, it’s not some long-forgotten 60s band, but the name of a tower designed by 6a Architects in collaboration with fashion designer Eley Kishimoto that will be open to visitors in London’s Covent Garden Piazza from Friday. Originally designed to promote the gallery space at the Architecture Foundation, it’s making a reappearance as part of Somerset House’s Skin + Bones exhibition. The pattern that adorns the outside of the tower was apparently inspired by Rapunzel’s hair; climb up and you’ll be rewarded with a rather sweet viewing gallery, six metres up in the air (but, alas, no hirsute ladies). Open until 20 July.
