Angular architectural feature constructed in FRP to mark the main entrance to Esker Foundation gallery.
The portal feature was designed to integrate with elements such as the revolving door, electronic display panels, and a fire shutter. Largely site built, FRP followed by a gel coat was clad over a wooden framework to provide the shape of the feature and durability required for this traffic corridor.
