How Palisades was made
The circular tubes, made from modified Composition® and Cube™ were scored in sections using a CNC machine, then hand-assembled to form repeatable circular shapes. Several muted brown tones were chosen from the Vertiface® colour palette to comprise the colour layer. The colours and shape of the walls represented the fortifications of early New Zealand settlements, which inspired the display. The entire structure was held together and secured with Autex channels and clips.
