Runaway

Santa Barbara, California

Runaway is the winner of the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara Take Part / Make Art Pavilion Competition. The three objects of Runaway are simple self-similar geometries and have a number of different possible orientations. In some orientations the matrix object acts as a dappled-shade structure, while in other orientations, the matrix can act as a wall, a loungescape, a bench, or a performance stage.  

Being constructed of a matrix of steel rods and having the potential to be situated in different positions, it was necessary to analyze the structure for a number of configurations and outside forces including wind and human-applied forces. In analyzing each configuration, an enveloped solution with simple details for the anchorage of the piece were developed for the implementation of the artwork in each unique configuration.
