The Cosmology of St James's is a hanging kinetic piece formed of bespoke ‘satellites’. The piece takes inspiration not only from the tradition of high end craft and making in the area of St James’s in London, but from Sir Isaac Newton, a former resident. The piece is installed at 12 Charles II Street, in London, and was announced winner of the 2014 Ground Floor Project, organised by the Architecture Foundation in collaboration with the Crown Estate.

La sculpture est installée au 12 Charles II Street, et a remporté le premier prix du concours The Ground Floor Project en 2014, organisé par The Architecture Foundation, en collaboration avec The Crown Estate.
