This hanging atrium sculpture was commissioned for the new Worcester Library and History Centre which opened in 2012.
The piece comprises 44 similar triangular panels arranged in a geometric cascade, fabricated in aluminium box section with mirror polished faces and mounted 27 metres in the air. The nodes are milled from solid aluminium and facilitate the connection between panels and suspended from one of the building’s roof cones, hovering above visitors’ heads as they come through the main entrance.
