Tetrahedron

An inhabitable tetrahedron hung above an unusual hill in Hooke Park. Made up of 6 identical box beams and 4 panels, the tetrahedron’s plain exterior conceals an intricate interior. The frame is of red cedar sourced from the surrounding woodland, and although appearing as heavy solid beams is actually hollow and contains tensioning cables and the fixings for the membranes. Seen from different angles, the tetrahedral form presents both square and triangular profiles.
