Tiffany Lin + Mark Oldham (LinOldham Office) – DesCours 2009 – Lateral Loop

This installation, presented for the 2009 DesCours event in New Orleans, is described in the designers words as below:

Lateral Loop creates a contemporary promenade during the day and an illuminated figure at night.  This white sculptural passage is assembled from 176 arced bamboo poles that mark a path from Pirates Alley to the Cabildo museum entry.  The floating matrix of arches deviates visually and spatially from the historic arcade, highlighting the laterally looped passage visitors have taken ever since the original arcade was gated for security.
