From there we began exploring flexible hinging systems and potential materials for the production of the "skin" surface.

Shellac resin
Laser Cut Pattern

Inverted plates on Fabric

We also had a visit down to the exhibition space on the Auckland Waterfront in one of the Team New Zealand Sheds. A very tall space for some very tall sky-rises. Imagine this space on the exhibition night filled with 8-10m structures!
