August 2009: Carnival Arts Centre, Luton.
An editorial assignment for Building Magazine saw me trek all the way to Luton to photography Ash Sakula’s brand new Carnival Arts Centre. Buzzing with life it is designed as a centre for all things carnival and is the hub of the biggest one day carnival in the country. Not Notting Hill as you would expect, but Luton! The building has a raw and industrial, but peaceful and graphic quality. Cleverly designed to work as an inside out or outside in space it is Intended as a place primarily to build carnival floats and study all things carnival.The staff are so friendly and the results made a good front cover and five page spread.
