Mobile Theater Cart Modeled After 16th Century Fortune Tellers [Pics]
London company recreates the market experience-of-old around the city.
Drawing inspiration from sixteenth century market stalls and Roman fortune tellers, this mobile theater cart will be roaming around the streets of London over the Summer.
Designed by London firm Aberrant Architecture, the theater cart is a bright blue color and features a rooftop platform as well as a covered seating area. It was constructed from steel and can be moved around using the trailer chassis it’s mounted on. The hope is that the cart will be a monument to the fortune tellers, mystics and peep shows that used to be commonplace in the area.
The architectural firm examined Hugh Alley’s sixteenth century text A Caveat for the City of London to get an accurate idea of what the cart should look like. If you’re in London, the next chance to see the travelling theater will be at the Waterloo Quarter Food Festival which runs from June 27 to July 31.
