Currently on display at Shatin Park in Hong Kong, “Kaleidome” is a brightly coloured, stainless-steel structure that children can play on. Passersby can also gaze through it and see their surroundings reflected back in kaleidoscopic effect.
It isn’t just fun though. The installation was created by LAAB Architects using a highly sophisticated computer programming system that arranged all 262 laser-cut cells (of 22 unique shapes) into a formation that would allow for as little material and spatial consumption as possible.
