AECOM Brisbane Office | Carly Scoufos

14 July, 2010

PROJECT AECOM Brisbane Office
LOCATION Brisbane, QLD, Australia
ARTIST Carly Scoufos
DESIGN UAP Studio, Stacie Gibson
YEAR 2010

Commissioned as part of the interior fitout of AECOM’s Brisbane office, this artwork by local artist Carly Scoufos is designed to reflect the company’s core principles of connectedness, collaboration and ‘sense of one’. Clustered spherical forms of woven bronze wire reference notions of cell growth, multiplication and the joining of many to create one cohesive group.

Viewed from a distance, the forms appear light and unified, with variations in the wire’s density creating tonal variations, while complex interwoven links can be observed in close detail. These contrasting views provide an abstract representation of AECOM’s local, regional and global approach to urban spaces.

The artwork consists of both suspended and ground-based clusters. The bronze colour complements the tones of the interior design, and the transparency of the artwork activates the void while maintaining lines of sight and a sense of spaciousness.
