Property developers Lendlease recently invited UAP to develop, manufacture, and install two suspended sculptures for the main entry foyer of One Melbourne Quarter, a new mixed-use precinct in Melbourne, Australia, that was designed by Woods Bagot and Denton Corker Marshall.
The two suspended lobby canopies were created to reference the traditional Indigenous fishing nets and the history of fishing in the nearby Yarra River.
To create the pieces, UAP used new augmented reality technology to speed up the delivery time, which involved a projected CAD model ‘hologram’ over the physical steel frame, allowing the fabrication team to visually identify and mark each connection point.
Here’s a glimpse of the construction of the two pieces.
