Pike Loop Inauguration

Since world-architects.com is the media partner for the Storefront for Art and Architecture and Pike Loop (featured previously) I was able to get a sneak peek last night at the completed installation, snapping the photos below. Tonight at 7pm is the inauguration of Pike Loop, which will be in place at Pike Street between Division Street and East Broadway until the middle of January, 2010. The exhibition on the installation's architects, Gramazio & Kohler, is on display at the Storefront until November 14, 2009.

  3. Initially when I saw the Pic is was wwondering how must have they constructed it. On following the link to www.storefrontnews.org i was relieved to know that it was constructed by industrial robot. With Human labor its really complex. Hope to see more such development for mass Construction in the future.
