‘Perspicere’ BT ArtBox for ChildLine

ZHA has reinterpreted the classic Gilbert Scott telephone box for the BT ArtBox Charity Auction; raising money for ChildLine on their 25th Anniversary. ChildLine has been a trusted friend that any child or young person in the UK can turn to when they need someone there for them - helping over 2.6 million children since 1987.

The Perspicere design engages a dynamism and playfulness with the formal simplicity of this most familiar presence of our urban landscape. The fluidity of Hadid's architectural sketch combines with the rigid orthogonal precision of the telephone box to reconfigure the viewer's perception. Curvilinear geometries that continually adapt with the observer's changing viewpoint invite further exploration to reveal new perspectives.

Perspicere is currently on display at St Pancras International Station, London
