Bloom Build features 3 whimsical flower-like organic forms that soar and glow over nearby visitors. The slender steel ‘stalks’ sprout up from a bench like base and take a bulbous form at the tip, similar to a flower bud. Bloom build allows visitors the opportunity to build up around the stem using green life-size pieces that have been cut to fit together. Although unseen, the force of gravity is constantly influencing how these structures stand up. This activity intuitively teaches structural engineering in a fun way. Rolling benches offer seating and storage for the excess leaf parts.
