EDDY
BY JENNY SABIN

Google, Mountain View, CA

Architectural designer Jenny Sabin and her team at Jenny Sabin Studio, known for elegant sculptures and installations inspired by nature, science, and technology, worked with One Hat One Hand to create a mesmerizing sculpture for the Google Bay View Campus, designed by Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG) and Heatherwick Studio.

The 40-foot high form, dubbed Eddy, is inspired by the characteristics of the local biomes, translated into a structure that carries a lightweight gossamer assembly of fabric components, a white stretch membrane of fabric, and a bespoke pattern in different interactions and densities.

 

The sculpture communicates with a weather station on the roof of the building, which broadcasts data in light throughout the tower.

"It was an absolute pleasure to work with Jenny Sabin and her team. The intricate and structurally complex features of works by Jenny Sabin Studio require fabrication partners that can adapt and iterate.

 

Our team carefully worked to preserve the artist's vision and deliver the most precise outcomes possible throughout the process. "
