A floating stage in the form of a giant lilypad, roaming around the swimming lake at a festival in Oxfordshire.
As part of Wilderness festival in 2014, Secret Productions (now MAMA Festivals) asked Architecture for Humanity UK to build something special and come to the festival to talk about their work. AfH UK decided to work with the Ecohouse Initiative and students from Cambridge University department of engineering to design and build a giant plywood 'lilypad'.
Throughout the weekend the lilypad provided a platform (both literal and metaphorical) through which both charities could conduct outreach work.
