#FabricationStory for this forest of steel.🌳 ‘Anything can happen in the woods’ is a composition of organic and industrial materials. Forty eighteen-foot-tall steel pipes, some weighing up to 900 pounds, were sourced and powder coated by Hope Powder Coating in Indianapolis. This forest of steel is punctuated with living trees from Brown Hill Nursery in Columbus. The grass mounds owe their distinctive shapes to internal grids of hand-cut plywood covered with dirt and live sod. The entire project was a close collaboration between Plan B Architecture and Urbanism and their local construction team Tovey Perry Co.
We’ll be sharing the stories behind the installations to encourage you to explore the connections between design, education, and fabrication. Also, who doesn’t love a little behind-the-scenes look? #exhibitcolumbus#exhibitcolumbus2017#planbarchitectureandurbanism#anythingcanhappeninthewoods#fabrication#makingof@toveyperryco_@yalearchitecture@cummins (📷: @hadleyfruits)

“I wanted to make something simple and practical, yet one that people long to touch and to hold. The inspiration comes from the hybrid of Henry Moore’s Large Arch, blended with form from classic water towers one finds throughout Indiana and the American Heartland. I think it speaks about the roots in the land of Columbus, as well as its remarkable cultural vision.”
@uplandbrewco partnered with @exhibitcolumbus, renowned architect, Kulapat Yantrasast, and @stonewareandco to celebrate the Exhibit Columbus art installations with a commemorative beer stein. I had the opportunity to document the process and interview each of them about the collaboration.
