CHOI+SHINE installs hovering, hand crocheted urchins at marina bay, singapore

in singapore’s marina bay, CHOI+SHINE architects has installed a sea of hand crocheted ‘urchins’ that hover above the ground, forming an unusually delicate contrast against the backdrop of super-tall skyscrapers. each fabric form comprises a crochet shell held in tension over an aluminum frame and suspended by thin, near-invisible cables. the project mimics the delicate and textured surface of sea urchin shells found in the ocean, creating a visual harmony between nature and the manmade environment in the urban context of singapore.
