Pinwheels Become Glittering Urban Art in Quebec City

New, 1 comment

Remember those handmade paper windmills you played with as a child? Well that was the motif that architects at Montreal based firm ADHOC architectes chose to work with when asked to create something on the theme of "play." Called the Vol-au-vent, the installation consists of hundreds of paper windmills woven together to create a canopy over SPOT—full name Sympathique Place Ouverte à Tous—an architecture and design cultural event held in Quebec City. Coated with a shimmering reflective film, the ephemeral installation created a patterned shadow effect during the day and a glittering canopy at night.
