The Thank You Bouquet Art Installation, designed by Gridesign, transforms the sturdy and robust bamboo into warm and gentle blossoms, responding to the primary notion of PX Mart’s “2021 We Together” charity festival. According to the artist Lin Ching-ke, a flower is the ultimate stage in which a plant pulls energy from its surroundings, blooms at the appropriate time, and extends its life in the form of beauty.
Learn parametric design and computational tools from the pioneers of the industry at the PAACADEMY:
The bamboo-weaving buds and blossoms make a bouquet of appreciation, and the scenery encourages people to express their praise in the middle of a chaotic society.
people can gaze up, move through, and let the bodies and thoughts roam through the gaps in the middle of 180 flowers on display in Daan Forest Park square. May people not lose their vitality and creative inclinations in such a turbulent atmosphere.
The design team is grateful to all the physicians, nurses, police, and firefighters who helped tremendously throughout the epidemic.
