Designed and installed by Future Cities Lab, TRILUX is an experimental construction of three vertical wooden lattice structures that create an illuminated beacon anchoring the corner of the site and invite the neighborhood to participate in the museum activities that take place inside of it. TRILUX is fabricated by combining traditional steam-bending techniques with CNC milled and laser cut components. The south faces of TRILUX host hundreds of curved spiked shade quills. Visitors view the sky through three unique woven oculi and in the evening lights illuminate the interior lattices.
