Meccanica Bomford art installation under way

Last week Szolyd finalized the Meccanica design details with Cedric from Bomford Studios. The buildout has begun on the Meccanica art installation. This sculpture was designed by Bomford Studios for the Meccanica development, located in Southeast false creek, Vancouver BC. Meccanica is a Cressey project ( http://www.cressey.com ) , and embraces straight lines and strong edges with slick automotive themed details. Szolyd is casting the project in UHPC ductal, a perfect medium for the modular design components envisioned by the team at Bomford Studios ( www.bomfordstudios.com ). This installation will have a unique twist, as it is to look like it has been at it’s location for years. State of the art casting materials, modular design, and vintage automotive post industrial lines will make this installation very unique. Stay tuned for updates.

Here are a few pictures of the first pour and the mold ready for ductal!
