By allowing the installation to have more depth, a hollow helix frame was designed. This gave a depth and allowed a multiple layering effect to the installation. The variation of height and sizes of each module were taken into consideration and were placed on a curve. Then modules were then coloured in different colours. The placing of each module on a curve and its colour give a visual impact to motorist and it enchances the layering effect.
However, this design was not feasible as it had a problem on buildability and each module was placed individually which had no connection between each other. The idea of twisting was still strong and we researched on different precedent projects to allow our idea to work.
