This small project impressed the judges particularly for the ingenious use of thin sheet steel in ways that maximised its structural performance and provided an overall elegance and lightness to the sculpture. Taking advantage of automation in design and fabrication, a seemingly complicated pattern of small elements was manufactured and assembled with relative ease. This project exemplifies the elegance that can be achieved where, by working together closely, structural engineer and artist can achieve delightful results. The judges agreed that they look forward to seeing a bigger version sometime soon.
