Chandler City Hall Art Scrim by Smith Group JJR
For Chandler’s City Hall, the team worked with an artist to merge art and a functional sunshade scrim on a 6-story elevation. The artist’s concept layers perforated metal “pixels” that each swing freely with wind currents. Lighting reinforces the nature-driven concept by utilizing familiar hues – blue, representing sky, and amber, representing desert tones. A theatrical interplay of blue and amber allows nature to become the artist, as wind currents result in hue and intensity changes based on the pixels’ movements.
