Colorful Underground Tunnel

Dec 20th, 2012

This was an art project within my specialisation of architecture. The objective was to create a function for an art object. Key was to use the quality of the subject.

I had a black cilinder with  small colored spheres in it.

The quality I saw was the refraction of light which passes throuh the spheres and created a spectacle of light and color. The best way to experiance it was in the object, so I transformed it eventually into a transportsystem for pedestrians.

Here an drawing of the concept and picture of it.
