Thicket Installation in Manchester, Tennessee by Sanders Pace Architecture (designed using Rhino)

Sunday, October 16th, 2011

Article source: Sanders Pace Architecture


This project was submitted to an open call for proposals for Pod Art installations at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival.  Our proposal sought to create a reprieve from the visual stimulation present at the annual Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.  The installation provided a spatially interactive experience – one which can be simultaneously viewed and occupied.  A 30′ x 30′ gridded field of 1 1/2″ diameter bamboo poles defined the installation while selectively removed zones created privacy and enclosure within an otherwise vast, undefined 600+ acre event.  The tight placement of poles also provided dappled shade projecting into internal spaces located within the gridded field.  Ultimately, This dense bamboo grid created an inhabitable thicket to be experienced and explored by the festivalgoer.
