File documents an unrealized project for the Sheffield Festival which was organized by the University of Sheffield Union of Students, in Sheffield, England, United Kingdom. An early proposal by Feliks Topolski and Cedric Price called for lightweight and movable gem-shaped enclosures of metal tubing, and fibreglass panels to be illustrated by Topolski. Later proposals involved the participation of Richard Hamilton, Robyn Denny, Bernard Cohen, and Joe Tilson. Material in this file includes conceptual sketches, detail sketches of support system, reprographic copies from original drawings, and photographic views of a model. Some material in this file was published in Price, Cedric, with Peter Murray. 'The Second Instalment in the Cedric Price Supplement Series', 'Architectural Design', vol. 41, (January 1971), 38.
