Plastic Fantastic!

cratehouseexterior-s.jpgcrate.jpg

The Cratehouse is definitely a punch of color added to the industrial town of Castleford in the UK. The pavilion (or sculpture), designed by German artists Wolfgang Winter and Berthold Hörbelt, is made of… you guessed it… a few hundred yellow crates sitting on two shipping containers. The concept behind it was to create a meeting point or clubhouse for locals of a city with industrial heritage.
The Cratehouse on Sagar Street in Castleford is open and free for anyone to visit but no more than 10 people are allowed in at a time.

    I’m not too keen on it outside, a little too much of an obvious hark to Castleford’s past, but inside it looks terrific. Great colours!

  2. a great work of art!
