Brief Published: 27 Mar 2012



Combining handcraft techniques used in weaving with large-scale installation, Berlin-based architecture studio Barkow Leibinger Architects has created Loom-Hyperbolic, a geometric structure for the 2012 Marrakech Biennale.

Designed using digital 3D mapping software, the project makes use of local materials such as stone and yarn to create a disorientating space. The white yarn casts dark shadows onto the ground when viewed under the city’s bright sunlight, adding another linear element to the space.

Wire Frames, the Stylus colour rationale for Autumn/Winter 2013-14, highlights the visual effects and colours associated with both virtual and physical structures similar to Loom-Hyperbolic.

The Marrakech Biennale ran from February 29 to March 4 2012.
