Emergent Landscape

The New Wishard Hospital Public Art Project, Indianapolis, IN 2011

Selected as one of four finalists to prepare a proposal for the New Wishard Hospital, Women’s Entry atrium space, emerging Landscape seeks to reinterpret a primary building material, concrete, capitalizing on its fluid possibilities. Through juxtaposition with the surrounding rigid precast panels, the emerging landscape becomes a series of “fluid planes.” To create these subtle, nature-inspired forms, dynamic software algorithms are derived that simulate naturally occurring processes translated into computer code.
