Coral-inspired installation made from 4,600 strips of aluminum

This perforated tubular installation by architect Marc Fornes really lives up the place!

Suspended above the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) in Orlando, Florida, the coral-inspired pathways were designed by Fornes and his studio The Very Many. Created by over 4,600 strips of metal, each piece is just a millimeter thick. In tubular form, however, the material drastically improves in strength to the point where it can be walked on. The studio says, “Borrowing and mismatching elements from the world, pushing them out of scale and hybridizing them to the realm of the bizarre, the structure achieves a familiar yet mysterious quality, at once friendly and alien.” Check out some footage of the installation below and find more on their website.
