AIINA Building, Morioka / Japan
A public art commission for the entrance hall of AIINA Cultural Center Morioka in Iwate Prefecture in northern Japan. Developed from a basic geometric principle and inspired by the formation of clouds, the object feels light and weightless despite it’s size and considerable mass. (Cirrus Radiatus is a type of cloud characterized by thin, curved wisp-like strands.) The object consists of approximately 120 fiberglass-reinforced polymer elements on a metal-frame. The individual parts were built in a shipyard in Newport Beach, California, and shipped in pieces to Iwate, where they were assembled in the entrance area of the AIINA building at a height of 35 meters.
