Final Weeks of the Submarine Wharf Presentation

Oversized objects, including an enormous bell tower, the music of John Cage, bicycles covered with white feathers, coloured lighting and a futuristic house that calls to mind a deep-sea capsule from tales by Jules Verne - all these elements come together in the Submarine Wharf. Have you been to visit it yet?
