Kayne’s Mausoleum was the response to the Monumental Masonry competition. The scheme was submitted as STUDIO DA, the name under which RUSSIAN FOR FISH and Pierre d’Avoine Architects collaborate.
The scheme took the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus as our inspiration. An inverted, stepped, pyramid roof formed a receptacle within which Kanye’s head is magically suspended. The pyramid is held up by four caryatids – Kim Kardashian, her sisters Kourtney and Khloe and her mother Kris.
The submission was ranked top 25 and will be exhibited at the Soane Museum between December 6th 2014 and January 3rd 2015.
