brooklyn-based designer cheryl baxter has developed ‘fantastic trailer’, a mobile pavilion constructed out of draft columns.
the inflatable structure consists of a platform base with six metal hubs which extend from the lower stand.
organza fabric is suspend from the circular pieces to create a tri-columns to activate the architecture with the environment.
air is then pumped through the textile pieces which is then slowly released through a small aluminet strip in the center seam to blur the lines
between drapery and design. during the evening, the installation lights up to illuminate the public space to change the landscape
through visual cues.
