Big FREEZE

Buro Happold have provided structural design assistance for an ice installation in Alaska

CK – Architecture and artist Lita Alberquerque designed the sculpture which has been designed for outdoor winter exhibition FREEZE. It features in conjunction with a programme of public lectures and other collaborative works using snow, ice and light, on the Delaney Park Strip in Anchorage.

The installation consists of an 25 x 1.1m table filled with oil and water. It was orientated to align with the precise direction of the sun at the moment of the fifty-year anniversary of Alaska’s statehood at one minute past midday on 3 January.

FREEZE is organised and hosted by the Alaska Design Forum in association with the International Gallery of Contemporary Art and the Anchorage Museum and runs until 2 February 2009.
