This distinctive tree-like system has been designed to help visitors navigate the complex ski resort providing information in a wide variety of directions to suit the village layout and changing seasonal functions. Each modular component has been cast to withstand the freeze/thaw temperatures of the environment at Falls Creek and can be connected in such a way as to adapt to the changing snowfall and the restructuring of the resort.
What is particularly exciting about this system is the way it aims to promote the highest possible visibility of information whilst retaining the smallest presence of supporting structure. It visually makes its presence when needed whilst discreetly merging with its environment.
The design practice also has a great blog documenting the Fall Creek production process in particular close-up shots of the alloy modular components being cast at Mullholland Foundry.
