ECHO ORBIT ART STRUCTURE

CLIENT: BRISBANE CITY COUNCIL

CONTRACTOR: J MAC CONSTRUCTIONS

LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT: PLACE DESIGN GROUP

ARTIST: SANDRA SELIG

ART CURATOR: CREATIVE MOVE


IRS were charged with the task to design, construct and certify “Echo Orbit”, a suspended artwork by Brisbane based artist Sandra Selig. Sandra had a clear vision for her piece that only tensile construction could deliver. So IRS knew we had to be a part of the collaborative team. This project saw the implementation of a carefully modeled cable net in excess of 1400 lineal metres between the 2 structures, which was then mated with 155 sqm’s of geometric shapes. The challenge of this unique project was met with detailed planning and precision execution. Custom clamps and minimalistic connection details were all integral ingredients IRS embraced to deliver on the clients brief.
