Hackney-based Studio Weave has constructed a network of listening pipes in a back courtyard of London's Great Ormond Street Hospital to create a secret factory of lullabies for children that cannot be seen except from inside the surrounding hospital and cannot be heard by the naked ear, only by tuning in to its radio frequency or from a few special listening pipes.
The architects designed a fantasy landscape reaching ten storeys in height and 32 metres in length, which can engage the imagination of everyone, from patients and parents to hospital staff, by providing an interesting and curious world to peer out onto. The Lullaby Factory consists of two complimentary elements: the physical factory that appears to carry out the processes of making lullabies and the soundscape. A new lullaby has been created, especially for the project, which children can engage with through listening pipes next to the canteen or from the wards by tuning into a special radio station.
