Through a collaboration between London based design studio Loop.pH and Nobel Prize-winning scientist John Walker large-scale interpretations of his molecular research and metabolic machines were translated into architectural structures around the city. Loop.pH hopes these designs will help bring cutting edge science closer to the public making it relatable and part of their everyday life.

One of the projects took place in an east London estate notorious for drug use. The installations helped transform that area into a useable space. “It’s not about telling people what to do, it’s about trying to help find the opportunities and develop the skills so they can be practised” explains Mathias Gmachl.

This project focused on involving the community and allowing them to take charge and ownership over the design, something Gmachl admits may be abit of a challenge for designers as they like to have full control and decision power.
