The Ground Explosion

Behold! From the earth underfoot jumps forth a sculpture of epic preportions, with a light in it too! This is a single-house project. There’s only one of these amazing amalgamations. But look, if enough people flip out over it, go nuts over it, break a blood vessel in their forhead for it, maybe it’ll be made on a large scale? I hope so. This is fabulous. What this project consists of is metal triangles embedded into the ground in a grid, a grid with the ability to hold triangles that appear to burst forth from the ground. Two planes pushing against each other.

Lovely, isn’t it? The closest thing I’ve seen to this in my experience is a hole in the ground where an umbrella could be stuck, all this below a table surface outdoors. This idea, wow did they expand upon it. These folks and VeeV design are triangularly brilliant.

This project is currently located in a 1950’s styled home in Berkeley Hills, California. High five to whoever’s house this is!

    i absolutely love this!!

    i wonder how long it will look that good in an outdoor environment, especially considering it incorporates a naturally growing component (overgrowth, corrosion etc.)
    i would like to think it maintains well.

    beautiful design.
    thanks for sharing.

    Stumbled across this – it look’s so amazing, aggressive, HiTech and yet implies harmony. Love it
