Chihuly Garden and Glass is a new art experience showcasing the most significant works of internationally acclaimed artist and pioneer Dale Chihuly. The space, which encompasses 1.5 acres of land, includes 9 exhibition rooms and each room will have anywhere from one to 25 pieces in it. Within each environment of the venue, Chihuly’s wonderfully colorful glass creations heighten the charming and enlivening spirit of the space whose primary focus is to celebrate the community’s creative energy.
Designed by the “new media” studio Apostrophy’s, the imagination light garden, as one of the main highlights at the International Horticultural Exposition, utilized two million light bulbs to create the five sections of the spectacular garden. The five sections:
bloom field – consists of several lotus light sculptures that create a welcoming atmosphere at the entrance,
star marine – features a flock of butterflies which plume in correspondence to the music within a field of light,
Anodard lake – named after a buddhist mythology, features a collection of fish light sculptures which ‘jump’ to the music against a backdrop of a peaceful lake,
back-light garden – composed of a hundred fluorescent-painted flowers that glow during the night,
and twilight field – situated at the exit by a Buddhist statue pavilion and consists of a lane created by two lines of local rattan flower lamps
Moreover, the light garden also have a group of “solar cell flowers” that were designed to absorb sunlight during the day in order to power the lights at night. Such a great idea to show awesomeness and consider the environment. [source]
Entitled Ocean Imagination, this incredible pavilion is a proposal for the Thematic Pavilion of Yeosu 2012. The pavilion allows visitors to experience the ocean’s ecosystems. “Ocean Gate” takes the culture of the sea shore and shifts it vertically. This move creates a dynamic visual that is a constant reminder of nature’s different environments. “It combines ocean ecosystem and architecture in accordance with the main theme of ‘Ocean & Life,’” says Unsangdong Architects.
