Sit and Play shows 12 chair-like sculptures by Material Architecture Laboratory (M-A-L), a research lab at University College London.

The structures are built entirely with M-A-L’s own building blocks – interlocking pieces produced from recycled plastic which are shaped like the letters S, U and P.

Meet the designer
Saturday 5 March, 11am – 1pm

Meet architect and designer, Guan Lee, in the Sit and Play exhibition between 11am and 1pm. Guan is one of the designers of SUP, the fabulous interlocking building block system made from recycled plastic. Guan will be on hand to help visitors with their constructions and answer any questions about this fascinating new product. Come along and discover more about SUP and how it came to be.

Booking advisable.

Book Tickets

SUP came about after educators, architects and designers based locally at Grymsdyke Farm, Lacey Green, asked themselves the question:

What can we make with recycled plastic?

The SIT part of the exhibition shows 12 chairs, each uniquely designed using SUP. Please note that visitors are not able to sit on the chairs for safety reasons as they are sculptural pieces inspired by the chair.

The PLAY part is for visitors to use the SUP to play, invent and build their own creations resulting in an ever-evolving display of visitor-made temporary artworks.

The Sit and Play exhibition and experience can be enjoyed by visitors of all ages.
