Italian artist Edoardo Tresoldi is renowned for his sky-high sculptures of figures and edifices meticulously crafted from mesh. For his latest project, Tresoldi has filled an entire pavilion with an impressive arrangement of awe-inspiring wire mesh architecture.
Stunning Wire Mesh Architecture
Tresoldi’s series of structures beautifully blends a classical aesthetic with an avant-garde approach. The sculptures feature age-old architectural elements like orderly columns, grand-scale archways, and colossal domes. However, their wire mesh construction, strategic lighting, and suspended installation gives the antiquated monuments a modern and ethereal feel. This material juxtaposition adds yet another dimension of depth to the immersive installation.
Tresoldi was commissioned to create these wire works for a royal event in Abu Dhabi. In collaboration with DesignLab Experience, a creative company specializing in creating “environments that combine advanced technology with refined craftsmanship,” the artist was asked to sculpt site-specific installations for the event’s 7,000-square-meter space. Naturally, we can’t wait to see how each wire work of art will interact with its new surroundings!
