An outdoor installation occupying the plaza of the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, USA, references trees and the flight patterns of migratory birds. Called MURMURATION, it will provide both seating and shade, the netted canopy. The bright green mesh structure is made from architectural netting pulled over a metal framework.
The installation was designed by New York-based firm SO-IL and explores Atlanta’s relationship with the natural world.
“Responding directly to the architecture of the Renzo Piano–designed Piazza, the structure also reacts to the city of Atlanta and its relationship with the natural world using the lens of bird migrations,” reads the description.
Adding: “Featuring a foliage-filled mesh canopy suspended over the Piazza by a steel framework, the installation will envelop guests, evoking tree canopies found throughout the city and region.”
The installation will be on view through November 2020.
