Bloom Opening Event

Bloom Opening Event

Saturday Nov 19 from Noon until 5pm
with acoustics by Professor Nalepa 


he towering shade structure, designed by Doris Sung with Ingalill Wahlroos-Ritter and Matthew Melnyk is nearly complete in the courtyard.

When completed Bloom will be one of our most bold installations to date. The shiny thermo-bimetallic 'flower' will change shape throughout the course of the day as it's 'petals' react to the heat of the sun. The dynamic monocoque structure is composed of over 14,000 laser-cut custom-fabricated parts arranged in a self-organizing, cellular panel system with a kinetic potential without the need of a power source or any mechanical parts!
