Defying Gravity

Welcome to the April issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best design + art projects from all over the world. The magazine is published eleven times a year by CODAworx.com – we’re an online community for artists and design professionals to showcase their work, collaborate with one another, and earn recognition for their projects.

 

Suspended in Space is the organizing principle of this month’s issue. Artists and designers place their creations above us, in the heavens so to speak, filling our environments with joy, beauty, and motion.

CODAmagazine documents this trend of putting sculpture in the sky; we have selected 25 amazing projects where collaborative teams create magic and wonder, finding the child in each of us as we gaze upward.

The common theme for these astounding projects is indeed the collaborative team, for each atrium sculpture requires complex engineering. Fabricators, lighting designers, and structural engineers are often key collaborators in the process of suspending an artwork in space with no visible means of support. Add movement into the mix, and these collaborative constructions become imposing, ever-changing formations.

This issue’s aerial projects are the best of gifts – speaking of the wonder, fragility, and fleeting nature of life. They create spaces that people want to be in and experience. We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to continue to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing these incredible collaborations with you.

 

Sincerely,
