Surfer's Paradise Shells

Date: 2014

Location: Surfer's Paradise, Gold Coast, Australia

Description: A modular system was developed for sun and rain protection for a festival held in Surfer's Paradise. Each module would be fabricated from fiberglass composite materials which allows each shell to be strong and lightweight. In addition, the rippled geometry of each shell also increases its structural stiffness. The system was designed so that the festival organizers could reconfigure the modules in multiple arrangements to suit different events.
