Two of the most unique thinkers in food these days are the unlikely duo of Sam Bompas and Harry Parr, who together form Bompas & Parr (yes, it’s very original). They rose to fame by forming jelly into fantastic shapes like national monuments, full-blown cityscapes, crafting glow-in-the-dark drinks and a installing a green river on the roof of Selfridges.
These days their experiments are getting even more fascinating like their newest project Alcoholic Architecture.
Bompas & Parr’s Alcoholic Architecture is live in Borough Market, featuring a walk-in cloud of breathable cocktail. The installation is an alcoholic weather system for your tongue where meteorology and mixology collide against a canvas of monastic mayhem, referencing the gothic splendour of neighbouring Southwark Cathedral.
This concept is phenomenal and turns the standard convention of drinking on it’s head. The project will run until early 2016 so get there while you can.
