Villa Walala is a boisterously colourful and invitingly soft-touch structure made from ‘blocks’ of vinyl, sealed PVC inners and high- strength nylon, adorned with Walala’s characteristic digitally printed patterns. The blocks will be inflated by fans, turning them from flat shapes into three-dimensional forms. They are the component parts of a huge architectural landscape that stops passers-by in their tracks and invites them to step away from the everyday, even if just for a moment. The villa’s vibrant tones, tactile surfaces and engaging shapes are designed to complement and enhance the recreational function of Broadgate, while providing a striking contrast to the typical colours and textures of its surroundings.
