A Quasicrystal for Denmark's Coast

by Tony Robbin,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Spatial, Lattice and Tension Structures


The first true quasicrystal structure will have been built in the fall of 1993 at COAST (The Center for Art, Science, and Technology at the Danish Technical University). With 600 aluminum nodes and 1000 22 inch aluminum rods as well as colored, mirrored and half-mirrored acrylic plates, it will be exquisitely and magically responsive to both changes in light and the viewer's movement.
