Secret Sky
by Alibi Studio

Catie Newell of Alibi Studio

Reworking the iconic structure of the existing barn, Secret Sky allows the sky to enter and permeate the building.

By day, the visitor sees the patterning and intricacy of the barn walls, juxtaposed with a massive cut that lets the daylight pour through. At night, the work glows from within, acting as a large-scale lantern in the landscape and casting long shadows across its surroundings, giving light and dark back to the sky.

This project has been longlisted in the installation design category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
