shoal

Client : Hilton / THAT Group
Location : Bournemouth
Status : Completed 2015

"Shoal" takes the simple and recognisable motif of the fish and uses it to create movement and animate the retaining walls of Bournemouth's newly built Hilton Hotel. Much like a fish's gills, colours which relate to the building's facade are hidden behind a curved, shiny, outer skin, and are then revealed as passers by move along the wall. Flows of fish respond loosely to the constraints of the retaining wall they sit on.
