Standing seven meters tall and stretching a solid seventy meters, the two-storey-tall construction is formed with 4000 lightweight modules with 12mm thick frames and 40cm cubed measurements.
Within three short days, local design build firm Oktra constructed the façade in a flat position and lifted the system into position by securing it to 463 linear meters of vertical poles.
Modules at the base were hued in black and collectively faded to white at the crest. The pixelated exterior simultaneously dissolved into the sky. Reflective and transparent acrylic panels were supplied by PyraSied. The pattern guided visitors toward the canopied entrance to embark upon a journey through the 2016-programme of installations, events, workshops and design exhibitions.
The structure was built in collaboration with Danish design curators Icons of Denmark and structural engineers Elliott Wood. At 70-metres-long and seven-metres-high, it was the world's largest installation of GRIDs.
