Angel Wings, London

A competition winning design for a 15m tall free-form stainless steel sculpture and retail kiosk. The wings of the sculpture are made of slender stainless steel ribs which are braced by tubes that pass over the ribs and back to the supporting arches.
The arches are curved into two directions in order to fit over the kiosk. They are made from sheets of steel that, when welded together, form a highly efficient box section structure. The arches were modelled specifically so that each surface has only one direction of curvature. The surfaces could then be developed into flat sheets by computer software allowing them to be sconomically fabricated.

Completed 2003.
