London South Bank Festival of Britain - landscape artifacts: The Morisons, Black Pig Lodge

Made of concrete, this bunker apparently is modelled on a Sami shelter. Inside is a polished coal altar that references defunct Welsh mining.  The materials are ingeniously used, and there's definitely an uncomfortable dis-used-cum-not-sure-what-rites-have-gone-on-here feel. As Ben Kelly's Enclosure, though, wrongly plonked.

Polished coal - durable for outdoors?

Moorish, or farmhouse plastic kitchen flooring?
