There were quite a few structural challenges posed by this helical sculpture that rotates on plan and on elevation: Simplifying the structural frame to make it buildable whilst keeping the thickness minimal, keeping the load transferred to the existing slab (slab over basement) the garden was located on within the slab’s capacity and ensuring that the design intent and geometry were presented in the drawings in manner that could be easily understood and built.

Our entry was for a modular construction that can be demounted. The superstructure was intended to be reused, not requiring any disposal. The structure was designed for use at the expo for 1 year and relocated to Malaysia as a permanent structure or used as single storey pods in the middle east or Malaysia, possibly as emergency or humanitarian structures.
