Physically imposing and heroic in scale, these installations helped break up the space
Inviting exploration, these walls were made up of hundreds of paper cylinders some pushing 18 ft in height. Over 1000 linear ft of cylinders were firmly rooted to the ground with over 35 tons of concrete footings. A mother mold was first 3D printed then copied and adjusted many times to create an assembly line of composites with various angles. Finally each concrete form was sanded by hand to create a truly refined surface.
Roughly the size of a semi truck, each monolith was suspended in the air throughout the space. Due to their sheer size, the monoliths were broken into four individual modules which were transported individually and then assembled on site using a specially engineered large format jig.
Inspired by Willie Williams’ infamous Omnia chandelier, this 40 ft wide structure acted as the centerpiece within the space. Over 700 individual clamps were used to mount the paper cylinders to truss and wood supports above. The shape was cut on site using a circular laser matching angles from our 3D model.
