Forming Urban Chandelier, 850 individually CNC trimmed carbon fiber rods are suspended above the alleyway with 6,000 reflective styrene triangles precisely hung to reflect the natural day light and artificial night light creating visible light patterns. The material properties provide for ever-changing light effects based on available inputs; wind, direct light, reflections or even projections.
Passageways is a joint project of AIA Tennessee and River City Company. Activating the urban alley through architecture, four Downtown Chattanooga alleys have been transformed with imaginative art installations. Unveiled in August 2016, these installations will be up for one year and will host a variety of community programming.
