WALL OF WONDER
The Wall of Wonder is a large scale, moving spectacle at the heart of East Barnet Secondary School, a specialist technology school.
The brief was to create a large wall feature to celebrate the wonders of mechanics.
A design team of students across the school years was formed at the start of the project, and was involved in the design, assembly and installation of this major display.
The main wall is constructed from black and white high-density polyethylene sheet. The routed surface creates a bold graphic façade with colourful moving parts.
The wall also includes twelve windscreen wiper motors that power the cams, gears and levers. The moving parts swing, rotate, slide and drop, signalling the start and end of the school day.
