Topography 1 Seating Sculpture by Mikyoung Kim Design

Home > Winners > #66090


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Topography 1

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seating Sculpture

INSPIRATION:
The plaza is a featured amenity for visitors and local residents alike. The bench is sculpted mostly from limestone, referencing the local geology of the Florida peninsula, with a color palette containing shades of cream, gold and grey, with slivers of anodized aluminum. Along with its smooth flowing form, the sculptural bench evokes images of the sand and waves of Florida. The striations from the laminated stone slabs represents the groundswell of cultures that have influenced the region.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A sculptural seating piece made of laminated natural stone slabs acts to retain a rain garden managing storm water on site. The project drapes all native stone materials across the site to create a wave-like form. These stone slabs start from the plaza paving and sweeps upward to create the bench for people to sit. Visitors can sit in the shade of the canopy trees and view the integral art piece, or interact with the sculpture itself, finding ways to sit, stand, lie and climb.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The plaza is highlighted by a sculptural seating piece made of laminated natural stone slabs that acts to retain a rain garden managing storm water on site. With its light colors and smooth flowing form, the sculptural bench evokes images of the sand and waves. A carpet of green grass envelopes the stone island oasis. Visitors can sit in the shade of the canopy trees and view the integral art piece or interact with the sculpture itself, finding ways to sit, stand, lie and climb on.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project is located at the Alexander Art Park in West Palm Beach, Florida, USA. The project duration was 2 and half years.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The materials used for this piece include laminated stone, limestone, resin, anodized aluminum, and concrete paving with shells

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The dimensions of the sculpture are: Width 15544.8mm x Depth 3352.8mm x Height 763mm (2'6"H x 11'W x 51'L)

TAGS:
Westpalmbeach, landarch, wave, sculpture, seating, bench, MYKD, Florida

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The challenge of the project was figuring out how to best utilize innovative technology to carve this bench out of laminated stone. Use and location of regional limestones. Installing the bench so that it was a fully integrated experience from paving to bench to have them match up

CHALLENGE:
Finding the right materials and making multiple mockups to study the way in which materials could be laminated.
