'Hatch', Grand Union Centre, London

A 12m tall, egg-shaped mobile, consisting of nearly 5,000 pieces of dichroic acrylic, designed by artist Martin Richman. This site specific piece hangs in the atrium of the Grand Union Centre building on Ladbroke Grove. The ovoid form is intended to symbolise the notion of incubation, in response to the building's offering of start-up offices to young companies. The mobile was digitally modelled using parametric tools, such as Grasshopper, to enable a flexible approach to form-finding and to assist with the production and organisation of information for assembly. The hanging acrylic pieces scatter sunlight throughout the atrium and onto the adjacent street. 

Completed 2015.
