Sitooterie1

This original and scultural cubic object was designed by architect Thomas Heatherwick .  A “sitooterie” (Scottish origins) a is a small summer cabin that represents a place to “sit oot.” This cube has an aluminum structure, under 8 feet in each dimension and 5000 hollow pins radiating outward from slightly inside the interior. The ends of the tubes are covered with a translucent orange plastic, casting a sunlit array of bright squares into the cabin during the day, and beaming thousands of orange pinpricks when lit form within at night.Sitooterie3 Sitooterie4 Sitooterie5 Sitooterie2
