Entrance sculpture: Taking inspiration from nature and specifically the seed pod form, the entrance sculpture marks the start of a journey and the beginning of development and transformation. It’s core patterning is derived from cellular plant structures, which has been used across the Hammond Park Secondary.
Wayfinding: The wayfinding sculptures sprout up at five locations around the school and work in with the wayfinding schedule developed.
Park: Growing out of the ground these seedlings inspired sculptures act as markers and stand at a height which is visible and is both informative and visual and curated in keeping with the voronoi cellular pattern.
Screen: The ideas of growth inspired the concept for this vertical screen. Reminiscent of foliage from native palm leaves and blades of grass, the twisted vertical members come together to create a dynamic voronoi cellular pattern. The vertical screen changes and morphs as move along the screen as each of the vertical members interact and play with form, shadow and light.
Perforated screen: In keeping with the voronoi cellular patterning, perforated panels of sheet aluminum puzzle together to form a recognisable graphics.
Wall sculpture: The final transformation has been inspired by dried open seed pods which seemingly curl and twist on themselves. Fabricated in 6 mm aluminum sheet, the Wall sculpture is comprised of a triangle pattern with alternating folds of different angles. The end result appears to weave in and out of the building façade completing the cycle of transformation and transition having released its seeds.
