Zoetrope-inspired fence

A Dutch architecture firm, FABRIC, won a contest to construct a temporary pavilion in the King’s Garden in Copenhagen. The fence design, comprised of several geometric shapes, is inspired by the zoetrope, and will constructed of closely spaced vertical timbers. Walking around the space will thus produce a zoetropic effect, creating moire patterns. The fence pieces also apparently have openings of various sizes, making spaces small enough for only kids to fit through, which promises to transform the gardens into a fun playspace. Opening in mid-September, so if you’re near, stop by.
