WANDER WALL PARKADE FACADE
CHARLOTTE, NC - IN PRODUCTION
The dynamic pulse of Wanderwall re-imagines an exterior parkade wall in the uptown core of Charlotte. Drawing upon imagery from Charlotte’s financial industry—among the most active in the country—the folded metal facade describes elements of flows and networks, with a labyrinthine porosity that allows light through to the garage interior.
This dimensional architectural skin is composed of 5,768 individual parts that wrap the Southwest and Southeast elevations of the Stonewall Station parking garage. Seven storeys of vibrant aluminum panels announce the building as a beacon on the Uptown skyline and produce several scales of experience that extend far beyond the building itself.
Expected Completion in 2018.
“We’re interested in producing several scales of experience with this piece. It acts as an iconic signal in uptown, drawing interest from a great distance, at the speed of a car or a casual stroll,” said Fornes. "It's made for different scales of perception.”
