Rest on ‘white’

A group of architecture students in California used 7432-sq-m of plastic sheeting to create a massive, malleable and climbable installation to fill a gallery space.

The WHITE project was realized collaboratively by 20 students at the California Polytechnic State University, who fabricated and installed it in just five days. The plastic was sliced, loomed, woven, stapled and taped to create prefabricated panels, which were then custom-fitted to fill the 416-sq-m gallery space.  ‘We wanted to create a continuous surface that would bring spatial interest and social interaction to the gallery,’ they say. ‘The woven installation is a solution to providing students and faculty a setting to not only read about our projects, but also to enjoy the space.’
