At 5.2m high and 1.7m wide, the door is comprised of 40 sections of wood which is further carved to accommodate pulleys, ball bearings, a wire rope etc. Stacked one above the other in the closed position, the planks rotate to reconfigure into a sinusoidal curve just by a simple push. This ingenious design to the door alone was enough to make it one of the four prize winners this year. The prize being The Architectural Review’s Emerging Architecture Awards awarded to the best pieces of design by young architects from across the world.
