Stimulating experience!



The sculpture hanging down through three levels of the Brookfield Place grand foyer is spectacular from whichever viewpoint you look at it. Commissioned for the opening of Brookfield Place in 2012 by BHP Billiton and created by Miik Green/Brad Ladyman, it comprises 2km tubular aluminum coated in red marine grade paint. I took the shot above from about half way down the escalators looking straight up.. looks a bit like a beautifully crafted space ship :) and the shot below from the first floor to show the many levels it encompasses..


Designed to 'have an impact on workers by continuously challenging and motivating them when they head to their offices through the foyer', the self-repeating patterns within the work create a series of lines, which provide a unique experience depending on the viewer’s perspective'. Personally I found it very stimulating :) Happy Thursday, take care.. p.s. catch up today!

  9. I like it. It certainly makes a statement, but I am cynical about it motivating workers.

  17. I doubt it would motivate me as I made my way to the office - might slow me down as I lingered to find new perspectives.

  21. "Designed to 'have an impact on workers by continuously challenging and motivating them when they head to their offices."

    What kind of money grabbing Dodo would think that would 'challenge and motivate' workers?
    I know what this worker would say to them......

  25. A very neat sculpture! There is also a Brookfield Place in Toronto... and it looks rather similar. :)
    This is not the best shot of it, but it gives you an idea.
