The Royal Soft-Serve-Atory
by Arup Architecture
The Royal Soft-Serve-atory combines cutting edge architectural design and engineering nous with the wonder and intrigue of 21st century space observation, to create a dynamic, sculptural form that overlooks the entire city.
In a rapidly digitalizing, citifying world, our scheme provides an oasis of interactivity and education for all generations, a reminder to look up from our screens and imagine. Housing the most powerful (and sickly sweet) telescope ever made, the Royal Soft-Serve-Atory allows the common gingerbread person the opportunity to explore the limits of the known universe, and into the ever-closer prospect of accessible space travel.
