The designs

 This is the overall design of the main atrium wall. There are 40 panels, most of which were designed by the 10 participants in our workshops. Some of the designs were repeated at different scales to create a 'scatter' effect. 

The lighter grey panels were to be finished in mirror-polished steel. We wanted to contrast  the very industrial look of the building with a shiny reflective finish. We also wanted the work to reflect the people and the life of the building and to respond to changing light throughout the day.
The darker panels are finished in brushed steel to create contrast where panels are layered.

Panels are fixed at different depths - some flat to the wall, and others floating up to 5cm in front of it, creating shadows and a feeling of depth.

See below for details of these panels.
