Oxford Brookes Forum sculpture

Share

Working in collaboration with the staff and students of Oxford Brookes School of Architecture we are prototyping the new Forum sculpture, a 4metres high by 25metres long installation which isĀ  to be built within the courtyard of the new Abercrombe building. The structure is to be a series of aluminium plate boxes following the lines of principal curvature along a looping form. By breaking down the surface in this way we are able to simplify the geometry into simple elements folded out of a flat planar shape. More development is needed, particularly of the joints, but we are encouraged by the behaviour so far. The Forum sculpture will be built early Autumn 2013.
