Synthetic Mangrove

Date: 2015

Location: Gold Coast, Australia

Description: Building on the concept developed in the Strand Tower prototype, a larger and more complex version of the project was developed for the Gold Coast's annual GLOW Festival. HDPE sheets are CNC cut and attached to each other creating strong yet translucent columns. Each column has a LED light strand within that is programmed to change throughout the one-evening event.
