Gizmo teamed up with artist Ned Kahn to produce this entrancing kinetic sculpture that outfits a parking structure at an NFL building in LA.
Client: Ned Kahn
Location: Los Angeles, CA
Date: January, 2021
This large-scale kinetic sculpture designed by Ned Kahn and fabricated and delivered by Gizmo outfits the exterior of a parking building at the new NFL Stadium in Inglewood, California. The installation consists of 4000 aluminum beams that sway in the wind to create a captivating undulating experience. Each beam is counterweighted to return to vertical in between gusts of wind.
The kinetic sculpture was intended to dematerialize the facades of the parking structure. This was a very important aspect moving through the design process and was the inspiration for the project. Gizmo’s fabrication team worked closely with the artist to ensure the project was successful and also to make sure the sculpture’s narrative was carried through the process.
