Wicker Forest

Grupo Talca


Architects: Martín Del Solar and Rodrigo Sheward

CONSTRUCTO’s 2014 winning project, Wicker Forest, by the architectural firm Grupo Talca, is composed of 13-foot-tall (four-meter) bundles of wicker designed to catch particles carried by the wind, to provide shade, and to sway in the breeze. After the exhibition, the wicker will be turned into furniture or used for decoration. Paths through the forest lead to four clearings, and from a tower at the intersection of these paths, a waterfall pours forth every 20 minutes to pummel a huge stone, evoking, as the architects put it, “the endless battle between rocks and water.”
