Hong Kong-based LAAB Architects created a public sculpture that invites visitors to see their surroundings in a mathematical-yet-playful way

In Hong Kong’s Shatin Park, a little girl pokes her head out of a bright, geometric opening. Her arms dangle over another opening in the structure, her body framed by the sloping shape of the dome.

A public piece recently completed by LAAB Architects, the Kaleidome was created using a computer-generated design. Composed of more than 200 reflective stainless steel polyhedral pieces, the work mimics the visual distortions in a kaleidoscope. Each individual piece serves as both a mirror that reflects the surrounding environment and frames it in a new way.
