The Roof
Oi! is a fascinating cluster of colonial buildings of different heights that laid out in a playful arrangement and all capped by a black ceramic pitched roof with overhang.
Oi! is a fascinating cluster of colonial buildings of different heights that laid out in a playful arrangement and all capped by a black ceramic pitched roof with overhang. In our installation for the central lawn, we have knitted a floating ‘roof’ which is freed from the normal functions associated with this structure and from any supports below: reduced to a pure form, it gives a clear shape to the space underneath. The ‘roof’ denotes the lawn as an outdoor area for art, interacting with the sun to dapple the lawn in an ever-changing net of shadows and linking with the buildings that provide the specific context to form a tight bond of shapes and spaces.
