The Architecture Foundation in London features 'Tangling' by Akihisa Hirata, a modern and striking installation.

Contained within the twisting structure in the institution's centric location, the work showcases fine attention paid to design detailing. The models are perched on the arched openings and are made of geometric clusters that are meant to show the inspiration behind the architect's building and space design.

According to Dezeen Magazine, Hirata explains that the initiative of this installation focuses on "linking the architecture of the future to the nature of living things.” With Tangling, he succeeds in creating a seemingly organic feel to the spiraling geometric shapes. The installation is Hirata's first solo work outside of Japan. His nature-inspired design ethos is sublime, and showcases a one of a kind creative vision.
