Southbank at dusk: Royal Festival Hall, Hayward Gallery and QE Hall

Seen on top of the Queen Elizabeth Hall at dusk is this curious boat shaped hotel room designed by David Kohn Architects and Turner Prize-nominated artist Fiona Banner.

Up to two people at a time can spend a night in the room, which is billed as “a place to reflect on the nature of transience”.
