The Melting House is featured on the AJ website.

Smith and Wallwork worked closely with the artist Alex Chinneck to devise a roof that can be lowered as the wax brick wall below is melted….at the same time as stabilising the wall.

Testing was carried out on the wax bricks, checking wax elastic and creep squashing when ‘cold’ and ‘warm’.

Melting starts in early October and will take one month.
