UAP Global Studios and Workshop assisted artist Alexander Knox in the creation of ‘The Sound That Light Makes’, a sculptural facade that forms the exterior screen to the newly developed 300 George Street precinct in Brisbane, Australia.
Working collaboratively with the artist and developers Multiplex, UAP developed Knox’s design, and constructed and installed the artwork in separate phases.
The facade spans 28632 square feet (2660 sqm) and is made up of over 2500 3D pressed and planar aluminium panels.
The design of the facade uses geometric and organic shapes to explore the effect of light shimmering on the surface of water.
Its three-dimensional metallic surface is designed to catch and mimic the kinetic nature of light on water, bringing the influence of natural forces into the highly urbanized setting of Brisbane’s CBD in Australia.
