Reflective Tiled Sculpture on Mocoloco

Caliper Studio’s reflective tiled sculpture is a wall made of polished stainless steel folded panels that have been inserted into a brick wall niche. Each panel is based on the same rectangular template, but with different leg dimensions so that the surfaces are angled differently. The challenge was to incorporate the individual panels into a whole that fit the site, and this was made possible by using a depth first search algorithm that tested the panels and built up the sequence.
