George King reveals plans for 'lasermaze'

  • Comment

London and Melbourne-based George King Architects has revealed an architectural installation for an upcoming design festival in Detroit

The practice, founded by NEON’s George King, has unveiled designs for a maze installation made from wool dyed with UV ink.

The ‘spatial puzzle’ is created from three miles of wool which provide glowing walls that act as a beacon during the evenings.

The main structure is formed from a 6m x 6m grid of steel scaffolding which forms a rigid structure from which tension wires support the UV wool.

Lasermaze was one of five entries chosen as part of an international design competition organised by the Detroit Design Festival.

The competition, which called for large-scale outdoor installations designed around the theme of play, received more than 50 applications and this was the only entry chosen from outside the US.
