#Touch (Sydney)

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA

Dani Marti has conceived an integrated façade artwork for Westfield Centrepoint in Sydney. The artwork is located at the main entrance on Market Street, and forms part of a master planned curatorial program activating key areas of the mall.

Marti, a Spanish-Australian sculptor, predominantly works in soft materials, skillfully manipulating thick ropes and weaving them into rhythmic patterns that appear as oversized fabric swatches.

The Centrepoint façade achieves this woven aesthetic with panels of cast glass-reinforced concrete. Marti creates a visual play between form and material, pushing the viewer’s perception as the concrete appears to warp and weave in flowing patterns across the surface. A unique feature in the revitalised streetscape, the intriguing, tactile façade invites exploration and touch.
