Commissioned by the Edmonton Arts Council, Marc Fornes / THEVERYMANY designed and built Vaulted Willow, an “architectural folly” within Borden Park in Edmonton, Canada. Constructed out of 721 aluminum stripes, 14,043 connectors, and 60 epoxy concrete anchors, the architectural sculpture explores these lightweight, self-supported shells “through the development of custom computational protocols of structural form-finding and descriptive geometry.”

The goal for the pavilion was to “resolve and delineate structure, skin and ornamentation into a single unified system.” The skin’s colorful gradient is formed through the careful layout of the individual shingles. Each one is similar to the next, yet they’re all unique and made through digital fabrication. The shingles overlap each other, much like shingles do on a roof, creating double thickness and a more solid structure.
