Reinstalling Paul Cocksedge (before) creates an endless cycle of wrapped wood in Yue Man Square in Hong Kong. Made from sustainably sourced wood, “Time Loop” is reminiscent of the symbol of infinity and represents the history of the city of continuous growth and change. A bilingual poem is engraved into the spiral structure, which extends over nine meters wide and three meters high, allowing passers-by to linger in the midst of the busy surroundings. “When people sit on Time Loop, they become part of the city’s movement and transformation,” says Cocksedge. “It reflects a place that has lasted for many years, but is constantly in motion and development. And that is the symbolism of the form. “

“Time Loop” was a gift from the developer company Chinese group to Hong Kong and you can explore more of Cocksedge’s architectural projects on the side of his studio. (above Design boom)
